Brenda Gillespie

Parent Leader

Brenda was born and raised in the “Windy City,” Chicago, Illinois. Her grandmother was a housekeeper and would take her with her to different client houses during the summertime. While her grandmother was cleaning, she would often say, “Brenda, please get your education.” Brenda is now a grandmother and will complete her Bachelor of Science in Business Administration in February 2024. Brenda is passionate about her children, grandchildren, and all children having access to an excellent education. 

“My goal as a council member is to encourage, support and dream with others to bring racial equity to education. To share my life of love, joy, and kindness with the world.”
