Presenter: Beryl P. Mankins, Executive Director
Beryl Mankins is Founder and Executive Director of Jonathan’s Legacy: Connections of Hope, a nonprofit she founded in honor of her son Jonathan who tragically died in1994. Overcome by her grief, Beryl eventually began collecting and distributing books in memory of her son, and transformed that grief and despair into something positive and healing to inspire and positively motivate others. In this way Beryl honors his generous spirit in combination with her love for books that have the power to educate those who struggle with their feelings of despair as she has with hers.
The two literacy initiatives (adult and youth) both collect new and gently read high quality educational books to give others encouraging independent learning. Jonathan’s Legacy Steam(Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) Book Club is their latest initiative.
Beryl is a 1973 graduate of Howard University in Washington, D.C. She received the Wade M. Gallant, Jr., 2010 Volunteer of the Year Award as an individual who exemplifies the true spirit of volunteerism for the mental health movement using her time, talents and energies for persons with mental illness.
Jonathan’s Legacy: Connections of Hope does not discriminate on the basis of religion, national origin, race, color, sex, or sexual preference.
