We sat down for a conversation with a true White Center treasure! Darlene Sellers has been Program manager at Steve Cox Park for 20+ years and has seen a lot over her years of building and nurturing relationships in our community! We aren’t exaggerating when we say that every kid in the White Center community has come into contact or will eventually come into contact with Darlene and the team at the Log Cabin! Her tireless devotion to White Center youth and their families is an asset to this community that is beyond measure. We are grateful for her work in the community, her presence in the lives of White Center young people and her friendship with all those who come come into contact with her. Happy that you’ll get to hear from her today!
For over 40 years White Center has been home to many Cambodian refugees. Over the last few decades we've seen Khmer families and businesses flourish and build roots here. Within the last 15 years due to redevelopment in our community, we've seen the Khmer population diminishing yearly. We talk to Thyda Ros and Stephanie Ung to learn more about their mission to re-establish the Khmer community here and their dream of creating Poom(Village) Khmer here in WC. Happy Cambodian New Year All!
