Congressional Commendation Award

Marquicia Jones, CMHA Assistant Property Manager, recently received a Congressional Commendation Award. Marquicia started the Q-Kids dance team more than two decades ago to provide a positive and productive outlet for public housing children living in the West End. Since then the group has grown to nearly 100 members.

Q-Kids members and alumni were on-hand when Congressman Steve Chabot surprised Marquicia with the well deserved award. Congressman Chabot saw the Q-Kids perform at the World Children's Festival earlier this year at the Capital.

CMHA commends Marquicia for her commitment to the children of the West End. As a former CMHA resident, Marquicia embodies the notion that hard work and perseverance will take you far in life. Next up for the Q-Kids...a musical performance that addresses bullying and accepting those who come from varying family and economic backgrounds. Stay tuned for more information as the performance dates are set.
