CONN-M-SWAWO . . .
Organization and First President
CONN-M-SWAW0, Plus P.K.'s was organized in St. Louis, Missouri in 1989 by a group of concerned Episcopal Supervisors, Ministers' Spouses, Ministers' Widows and Pastors.
Dr. Dorothy Owens (Left) was the Founding President. Dr. Owens served as President of the organization until June of 1997.
The Baton Is Passed
In June of 1997 at the site of the Bishops Council and General Board Meeting in Orlando, Florida, Mrs. Ora L. Easley was elected the organization's second President!
Under her leadership, many wonderful accomplishments were made but none can compete with Conn-M-SWAWO Plus PK's existence in cyberspace and our presence in the 2000 Book of Discipline AME Church.
The Race Continues
In June of 2005 at the site of the Bishop's Council and General Board Meeting in Dallas, Texas, Mrs. Fredia A. Hanley-Johnson was elected the organization's third President!
