  Rachel Bell, attorney and recently elected General Session Judge will serve as the keynote speaker at the event. This year’s theme, “Embracing Excellence,” will focus on the importance of education and youth today.
  Rachel is a native Nashvillian and a graduate of Hillsboro Comprehensive High School. She received her undergraduate degree from the University of Memphis and her law degree from the Cecil C. Humphreys School of Law. During her undergraduate and law school studies, Rachel dedicated her time as a spokesperson and Walk Ambassador for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation for Type I Diabetes. Rachel continues to support and work with the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation and several other organizations around the city.

Her most recent accomplishment was her election as General Session Judge where she beat out contenders who were deemed the “likely” candidates to win.
  Rachel’s interests include playing golf, playing basketball, reading, worshipping and fellowshipping with family and church members in addition to mentoring youth.
  The Black Achievers Program which is a comprehensive college and career preparation program for students in grades 7-12 is dedicated to providing opportunities for college scholarships, leadership development and career guidance through the support of the YMCA staff, volunteers and parents.
