My name is Opal and I was born in East Texas and raised in West Texas went to school in San Angelo tx received my nursing license in Shreveport LA and received my elementary education degree at PVAMU. I married Ardrie Allen a US veteran of the Air Force. I have traveled to a lot of places learned from a lot of cultures and I have a wonderful  blessed life and while in one the places my family and I was in I became the assistant director of a girls club and from that moment I knew I liked helping people and with the knowledge 

of knowing that education is the key to success was a subject of interest I needed to be in. I have served in non profit organizations for the last 10 years. I enjoy bringing a ray of sunshine to people who have a need of help to survive in this uncertain time. Again I am happy to be a part of this organization and be able to help where I can.
