Sistahs Making A Change is happy to present Ms. Carlolice Shepherd, our March 2013 Sistah of the Month. Carlolice, CoCo as we call her, is a dedicated member of Sistahs. You will find her dancing her heart out every Monday and Thursday. Her passion for dance is evident whenever you see her move across the dance floor. She is seriously funny and we never know what she might say but if she needs to say it she will. Carlolice is a loving, caring person and always has a word of comfort and wisdom at just the right time. She is truly a Sistah friend to us all. Meet our Sistah of the month.
