Ms Tracey James
Welcome San Antonio Chapter, Blacks In Government (BIG)'s 2021 Corresponding Secretary,
Ms Jessica Hill
It is an honor to serve the San Antonio Chapter (SAC) of Blacks in Government (BIG) as its President. In this capacity, the stakes are set to enhance and elevate SAC to a higher level in order to experience the BIG mission and be aligned to the BIG goals and objectives both regionally and nationally. With BIG’ s foundational strength, this Chapter will become a beacon of light for other chapters to follow. The leadership experiences brought to the table stemmed from over two decades of Active Duty service to the Nation. Service ranged from serving as an Army Medic to becoming a Senior Enlisted Advisor to the Surgeon General and Commanding General on Organizational Medical Preparedness. It is a calling to “serve” others and that calling is humbly accepted.
The National Organization of Blacks In Government, Inc. and the San Antonio Chapter sends our heartfelt condolences to the families of The Reverend Doctor C. T. Vivian, former President of The Southern Christian Leadership Conference, and The Honorable U. S, Representative, John Lewis.
