Emerging Leaders

The Emerging Leaders of the Knights of Peter Claver, Knights of Peter Claver Ladies Auxiliary is comprised of vibrant, ambitious leaders from the ages 18 to 35. The Emerging Leaders was a national initiative established by Past Supreme Knight A. Jackie Elly and Past Supreme Lady Leodia Gooch as a means to increase the knowledge, recognition, participation, and understanding of young adult Clavers.

Since its conception, this committee has been adopted in all six regional districts of the Order. Additionally, because of this initiative, Claver involvement in leadership, community outreach, and ministries has increased, immensely. The Emerging Leaders strive to be stewards in their respective churches and communities as they develop their own leadership and Catechetical knowledge through retreats, seminars, conferences, and conventions.

The liaisons of the respective districts are as listed: Brother James Davis (Central), Brother Amon Robinson and Lady Esohe Asemota (Gulf Coast), Brother Cursey Calais and Lady Arletta Chambers (Louisiana), Brother Nolan Proctor and Lady Martina Scott
(Northern), Brother Cortney Pichon and Lady Ashley Pellerin (Texas), Brother Jordan Singleton and Lady Jessica Mays (Western).
