Please Welcome SCORE Mississippi Chapter Chair, Darleana McHenry
Greetings Mississippi Score!
I am Dr. Darleana McHenry your new Mississippi Score Chapter Chair. Thank you for supporting me in being your leader. I am in Cleveland Mississippi. My family has lived and been buried in the Mississippi Delta for 120 years and in the State of Mississippi for over 500 years.
As an Educator, I am thrilled with the Score learning platform. I encourage you to access the platform frequently for new content. I am placed to play a role in the economic development in Mississippi by mentoring entrepreneurs. We are here to build businesses that provide jobs for Mississippi .
I started my first business over 35 years ago with a Score Mentor as a sole proprietorship to promote workshops in Education. I founded a 501 c3 23 years ago which is registered now in 3 countries and 3 states which is funded primarily through grants and contracting. I have also started 2 LLC's in the past 10 years to promote and sell my intellectual property. One of the LLC's is a 12 step community with a community of over 300 persons. I have also been a Chaplain for the women's correctional facility in Mississippi.
I describe myself as a Servant Leader and I try to lead by example. I am really interested in Mentors enjoying their Volunteer time in Score. We will be expanding Score Mississippi to serve every nook and cranny in the state as well as recruiting from every demographic. I don't know everything about Mississippi. I have traveled the world most of my life. So I look forward to learning from you as my teacher as I grow into a better leader. I am really excited about this opportunity to make Mississippi better.

SCORE helps Michelle Anderson's EazyBreezy HR Solutions thrive with free mentoring and online resources. Michelle has been able to apply the knowledge gained from SCORE's webinars and events to build capacity and gain a competitive edge for her business. She advises other business owners not to sleep on SCORE and take advantage of its abundance of support. Michelle's multi-talented nature has also led her to become the CEO of the Infinity Science Center in southern Mississippi, where she continues to grow EazyBreezy and hone her HR and small business skills.
We believe that anyone can start and manage a successful small business. We also know that the road is harder for some than for others. Diverse backgrounds, different voices, and unique needs may call for specialized resources and mentoring approaches. SCORE is listening, recognizes these diverse needs, and provides personalized support in a wholly-inclusive platform called SCORE for All.
