Roxie Randolph is New President of Assistance League of St. Louis
A Renaissance Woman is well-educated, sophisticated and has talent and knowledge in many different fields of study. Roxie Randolph, President of Assistance League of St. Louis for 2018-2019, seems to wear this description well according to Assistance League peer, Arlene Holley. Arlene, a friend for many years, adds that Roxie is a true leader, a natural multi-tasker, a woman of her word and eager to share her learning and talents with others.
Raised in Houston, Texas, in a family of four children and over-protective parents, Roxie, as the second child, strived to make a mark in the family. She graduated from Texas Southern University majoring in Mathematics and minoring in Physics, earning a Bachelor of Science degree and was honored with an award of a Post Baccalaureate Fellowship to Oberlin College in Ohio. After Oberlin College she returned to Texas to complete her Master of Science degree in Mathematics. Two months later she was married.

Operation School Bell® Wraps Up for 2017-18
Operation School Bell had another great year of bringing smiles and a sense of pride to nearly 3,500 St. Louis area students at 29 schools who received crisp new uniforms during our 59 dressing days. In addition to the traditional uniform shirts, pants, fleece, socks, underwear, toothbrush and toothpaste--and the ever popular book of their choice--each child this year received a warm hat, gloves and a belt! Also new this year, Operation School Bell is providing the schools with extra clothing and hygiene kits to be available as needs arise.

Authors Brunch 2018
"Love and Laughter" Filled the Air!
On Saturday, April 28, a bright sunny day lifted the spirits of many while sounds of Love and Laughter permeated the spacious cavities of the dramatic Atrium at Edward Jones in Des Peres. Nearly 400 guests were being entertained, inspired and educated at this, the 13th annual Authors Brunch hosted by Assistance League of St. Louis. The spotlighted speakers, Kevin Killeen, a local author, journalist and KMOX personality and Amy Dickinson, a famed newspaper columnist and author, kept guests captivated by tales of woe and tales of laughter. See photos from the event by Ladue News and Town & Style.
Suzanne Pratl, President of Assistance League, introduced Cathy Inkley, chairman of this year’s Authors Brunch, and Maureen Swingle, vice chairman, as the guests were treated to a scrumptious brunch. Twenty-two ‘opportunity’ baskets were on view and available for guests to take a chance on before the brunch. Guests enjoyed meeting the authors before and after brunch and had the opportunity to purchase the books that the authors personally signed.Read more ...
