Mrs. Yolanda Molden-Verner
Yolanda Molden-Verner is the founder and CEO of MOLD-EN OUR YOUTH FOR A BRIGHTER FUTURE, Inc., a 501c3 nonprofit organization, focused to provide resources and financial assistance to high school students, seeking to obtain their post-secondary education.
She is a graduate of Calhoun County High School, Edison, Georgia. As a high school student, the lack of financial resources resonated within her, thus creating a wonderful opportunity to give back and make a difference in the lives of students, by encouraging them to attend an institution of higher learning.
She believes "Education is the new currency!” A post-secondary education will significantly improve employment opportunities, earning potential, and most importantly in the words of her mother, Ms. Eunnie V. Molden, “Education is something that once you get it, no one can ever take it away from you.”
An Army Veteran, she served her country with pride and honor for 22 years. While serving in the U.S. Army, Yolanda attended many schools and courses for professional development and received numerous awards and decorations for her performance and achievements. Initially, Yolanda established the "MOLD-EN OUR YOUTH FOR A BRIGHTER FUTURE EDUCATION AWARD” to provide financial assistance to students at her high school alma mater. As the founder of MOLD-EN OUR YOUTH FOR A BRIGHTER FUTURE, Inc., the organization’s dedication and focus will be to provide resources and financial assistance for students to complete their post-secondary education.
Yolanda currently resides in Tampa, Florida. She serves faithfully at her church and loves to reach others through volunteerism. She enjoys traveling and spending time with her family. Yolanda is a member of Kappa Epsilon Psi Military Sorority, Inc. She currently holds an MBA from the University of Phoenix.
