  • Norfolk-Virginia Beach-Newport News, VA-NC (1888PressRelease) February 28, 2012 - Scarlette G. Hunley, Retired Social Services Worker and Seamstress, has been selected as an Honored Member of the Biltmore Who's Who Executive and Professional Registry. The selection recognizes Scarlette G. Hunley's commitment to excellence in City Government and Fashion.

    Hunley, who worked in social services for forty years, began working as a seamstress for three local sewing factories in her hometown of Petersburg and at various local alteration shops within her community before starting a business from home.

During her time in the sewing industry, she learned to make ladies garments, men's suits, wedding and prom gowns and children's clothing, and also did minor repairs on her sewing machines.

    Hoping to work on a fundraising project in the future, Hunley also would like to do some public speaking to low income parents, senior citizens and others, and conduct workshops to educate the people of their rights, responsibilities and services available to them, as well as inspire young mothers to volunteer locally.

    "I want to inspire others that their lives can change and that they do not have to always accept what others tell them as truth," Hunely explained. "They need to do their homework and educate themselves by asking questions of what services are available."

    Hunley is a member of the Virginia State Client Council and has served on the Virginia State Client Council, is the founder of Delectable Heights Neighborhood Reunion, is a past coordinator for First Welfare Rights Group of Petersburg and has spoken before the Virginia State General Assembly on Medicaid Issues.
