LaVonne D. Rosbor is a first generation college graduate, seasoned professional who loves Christ, children and the Dallas Cowboys. A native North Carolinian, she was raised in Greensboro, N.C. and is the daughter of Mr. William and Diana Rochelle. She is a graduate of Walter H. Page High School and proud parent of Tyler J. Rosbor, who is an athlete, honor student at Page High School and chief executive officer of I AM Legacy, an African American male youth mentoring organization. The 14 young men selected have at least a 3.0 G.P.A. and are active in their school, church and communities, and will make a lifetime commitment to becoming a legacy. Their primary mission is to “take back their communities one male at a time”.

She says she never considered herself beautiful. The spiritual thought of a beautiful and successful woman reaching out, sharing her story and experience, Rosbor says was enough for her to enter the competition for Ms. Black Triad USA. “Many people are unaware like myself that millions are suffering with depression deep within but smiling on the outside. Every moment of my life, that I am complete, and every hour of every that I am healthy and happy, is a gift from God,” she says.

There are many things Rosbor has been blessed to accomplish. Most importantly she acknowledges becoming a woman of God. She has earned two master degrees, a bachelor, and specialist degree; all focused around education and is an active member of the High Point Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. She also started a city-wide summer reading program in the city of High Point of which students read over 5,000 books online. Rosbor says the real crown is the opportunity to advocate for the youth, her community, and outside of her career.
With 20 years of experience within the field of education, she has noticed parental involvement has steadily declined and youth becoming deeply disconnected from their culture and communities. “The school system alone can no longer be responsible for raising and grooming our children. We must take back our kids and our community,” she says.

As Ms. Black Triad USA, Rosbor says she plans to advocate and bring awareness to “I AM Legacy” everywhere. She is currently completing her dissertation and has set a personal goal for degree number five at Cambridge College of Cambridge Massachusetts. When it is all said and done, she hopes to have realized all of her dreams. This includes becoming a college or university chancellor or provost. She also plans to publish a few articles and write a book for youth and parents. “Simply, I want to enjoy life every day as a testimony and promote her son’s organization “I AM Legacy” as a motivational speaker. “My life must have meaning, value and purpose,” she says.
