What We Do...
The Mademoiselle Service & Social Club (MLLES) was founded in 1960 on the campus of Booker T. Washington High School and the High School for the Engineering Professions in Houston, Tex. by Mlle. Patsy Meeks, an English teacher, to promote etiquette and service amongst the female students. In 2004, MLLES was established as a 501 (c)(3) charity by Mlles. Shannan E. Johnson and Brandii R. Mayes to expand the programming, service projects and scholarships to young women of color throughout the greater Houston-area. The largest of these programs is the Annual Mademoiselle Conference with workshops covering health, higher education, social and life skills.
