Site Director of the Month Recipient

Ms. Verbena Brown-Cummings 

Howard Drive Elementary


Ms. Verbena Brown-Cummings has been the Site Director of the 5000 Role Models of Excellence Project chapter at Howard Drive Elementary School for 16 years. She provides a positive and enlightening club experience for the African American boys at the school. She creates experiences including the end of year restaurant trips before the pandemic, community business seminars, health summits, and stock market and investment classes.


Capitalizing on virtual learning, her chapter is participating in stock market games, and etiquette lessons. They practice buying and selling stocks to learn about the financial market. Ms. Cummings is excited about the boys in her chapter learning to make sound decisions for lifelong success. She is committed to the mission of the 5000 Role Models of Excellence Project and wants every boy to feel a sense of belonging, have access to a support system and learn the importance of becoming strong men in their community.


Her favorite saying is: “We are meant to shine”!
