On Tuesday, December 6, the Greater Kansas City Chapter of the Urban Financial Services Coalition (UFSC) held its 13th Annual Holiday Reception and Scholarship Awards Program at the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City.  The event was attended by nearly 200 financial services professionals and community leaders.  Ms. Pamela Popp, Managing Director and Head of Retirement Strategic Initiatives for J.P. Morgan Asset Management, was the keynote speaker and addressed the event theme, “Thriving in a Season of Change”.  Soulstress Darcus Speed-Gates was the entertainer.  UMB Financial Corporation, the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City, U.S. Bank, Capitol Federal Savings Bank and Commerce Bank received corporate awards for their support of the chapter during the year. 

Scholarships were also awarded to Katerra Shackelford (Baker University), Felicia Collins (Hampton University) and Latrice Stringer (Lincoln University).  Earlier this year, these college students participated in UFSC-GKC’s Scholarship Program by completing an online application, submitting resumes and transcripts and meeting with a panel of judges to make oral presentations on pre-selected topics related to issues in the financial services industry.       

The Urban Financial Services Coalition has 23 chapters and 2,000 affiliates throughout the United States and Canada.  The organization’s mission is to provide professional development, support educational advancement and provide economic empowerment for its members and minorities communities at large.
