Principal Officer

Rhoda Matthews

BIO

Rhoda Matthews was born and raised in Flint, Michigan where she graduated from Flint Southwestern. Upon completing undergraduate studies at GMI Engineering & Management Institute (now Kettering University) in Management Systems, she moved to the Detroit area to accept a position at Compuware Corporation. While in Detroit, she completed her Masters Degree in Business Administration with a concentration in Organizational Development at Wayne State University. A strong desire to be a part of the revitalization of the Flint area prompted Rhoda and her husband, Corwin, to move back home in February of 2002 as small business owners. In 2004, she began working as an information technology specialist for Genesee County before accepting the position of Executive Director for Flint Club two years ago - a position she still holds. Her current and former community involvement includes The Flint Children's Museum, Urban League of Flint, Delta Sigma Theta Public Service Sorority, Family Worship Center Church and the Rotary Club of Greater Flint Sunrise.
