LaTasha Renee Savage

PINE BLUFF, AR (July 30, 2014) – Local business owner, LaTasha Renee Savage announced her intentions to seek the position of Pine Bluff School District Board of Directors for Zone 4.

“As a Pine Bluff School District, Southeast Arkansas College and UAPB educated business woman, I have long been a supporter of our educational system. I support engaging curricula and making fiscally and academically responsible decisions for our district. As the Director of Operations and co-owner of “It’s Mom Me Child Care and Early Development Learning Center,” I understand the value of education and a board that governs with responsible oversight,” said Savage.

In addition to her position as Director of Operations at “It’s Mom Me;” Savage has also been the owner and operator of Rolls Royce Beauty Salon for more than 20 years.

“Education is more than reading, writing and arithmetic. It is one of the most important investments a city can make in its students and its future. Education can boost economic growth by creating greater opportunities that reduces poverty, saves children’s lives and fosters peace,” said Savage. “With improved education, so many other areas are positively affected. Education has the power to make Pine Bluff a better place.”

Savage has worked in the community and schools through her annual Prom Dress Drive, where she collects dresses, shoes and accessories and provides them free of charge to students who may not be able to afford the luxury of attending prom. In addition, she provides one young lady with a full makeover. Savage also coordinates and plays host to the Thirty-Fourth Avenue Elementary School’s annual fashion show, which consist of three shows. During the school’s annual “Father & Daughter” banquet she has served as the keynote speaker.

Savage is a 1989 graduate of Pine Bluff High School and a 1990 graduate from Cosmopolitan School of Cosmetology in Pine Bluff where she earned her cosmetology license. She attended Southeast Arkansas College (SEARK) before transferring to the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff (UAPB) where she will graduate in May 2015 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in English.

While at SEARK, Savage was inducted into Pi Theta Kappa, the highest national academic honor society established at a 2-year institution and she also served as president of the chapter. At UAPB she was a Sigma Tau Delta English Honors inductee.

Savage is the mother of two children; Brea Holloway and Jordan Racy and is engaged to Lafayette Woods, Jr.
