Mrs. Dickason has provided countless hours of community service in the Muskegon community to address community needs with our sorority’s programs in five target areas:
- Educational Enrichment
- Health Promotion
- Family Strengthening
- Environmental Ownership
- Global Impact
As a Muskegon, Michigan native, Mrs. Dickason has lived up to her promise of giving back to the community. During 2016, the Muskegon Community has shown an outpouring of support for Mrs. Dickason by attending book signings and inviting her as a motivational speaker to many of our local elementary schools to share the message of her book: Arianna’s First 5K
I had Keshia Dickason at Hackley Public Library in November 2016 to share her wonderful book “Arianna’s First 5K” with children in the community and her very own built-in fan base. It was a wonderful experience for all. She read her book, gave pointers on being healthy and preparing for a 5k and even had the audience participate in stretches and exercises to help with running preparation.
On top of all that, she provided a goody bag which the participants thoroughly enjoyed. Her program gave the children a positive experience and inspired them to seek out a healthy lifestyle. – Cassandra Hamilton, Head Youth Services Librarian, Hackley Public Library
