But Most Important
That is the motto that Tadean Page lives out every day. Growing up in the small town of Dillon, South Carolina, Tadean found his passion for public service. An author, philanthropist, founder, board member, and continuous learner, Tadean’s mission is to make the world a better place by providing hope and solutions that create meaningful change.
“Leading is what I was called to do, but serving is my passion.”
"Tadean’s passion for service can be seen in all aspects of his life."
Whether it be through his recently published book, Dear Black Boy: A Collection of Truths from the African American Male Perspective or his organization, Motivating Males, a support system for males in today’s society, he wants each person he impacts to know that the sky is the limit.
The work doesn’t stop there. As the youngest board member in the Rock Hill Schools Education Foundation Board’s history and a number of other organization and community-based efforts, Tadean works alongside administrators and educators to create strategies and solutions that assist in the efforts to better serve students.
Tadean is a 2018 graduate of Winthrop University with a degree in Organizational Leadership and now works as the Public Outreach and Community Coordinator and Assistant for Student Leadership Development at the university. He is also a 2019 graduate of the Northeastern Graduate School of Education with a Masters of Education, focusing his research on social emotional learning and the development
of young males of color.
There is much more that could be said about Tadean (like his love for Chipotle and Beyoncé) and the work he has done, but for him, the commitment to humanity is what matters most.
“As we seek to understand the humanity of others we get that much closer to that of our own.”
