A Passion for Service
Soror Nancy Finley Barbour
Each One Teach One. Soror Nancy Finley Barbour embodied this African proverb with every fiber of her being through her compassion, service and advocacy. Soror Barbour was a compassionate woman and demonstrated it by speaking with kindness; listening to other perspectives; encouraging others and helping out when needed. She was a servant leader who could be out front, but was not too proud to work in the background. Whatever needed to be done for the greater good; that is what Nancy was committed to doing. Soror Barbour was a fierce advocate in whatever cause she decided to undertake. Whether it was educating women on breast cancer awareness and providing resources; creating a program to recognize academic achievement for black and brown students in Loudoun County Public Schools; or strategically planning programs and initiatives to ensure that the community was educated, empowered and ready to participate in the election cycle – Nancy could be found advocating for marginalized members of the community.
Soror Nancy Barbour believed in training the next generation of leaders and served as a mentor to many. Her example is the blueprint by which we all can follow in service to our families, Sorority and community.
