Phi Alpha Theta National History Honor Society presents its annual Distinguished Speaker Series.

Join us as guest speaker, Ms. Elizabeth R. Thompson, Executive Director of the non-profit organization, the Association to Preserve African American Society, History and Tradition, Incorporated (P.A.S.T., Inc.) presents "Education and Celebration: The African American  Museum Experience".

As an Orlando, Florida native, helming an organization that seeks to highlight the African American contribution of significant Floridians, allows Ms. Thompson to serve the community that she has loved her whole life.

Partnering with community influencers, corporate executives,  entrepreneurs and other non-profit organizers, Ms. Thompson has ensured that P.A.S.T., Inc. brings valuable and educational community programming to the Orlando and surrounding areas.  Ms. Thompson’s proficiency in grant writing and administration have allowed her to spearhead P.A.S.T., Inc.’s, most prominent endeavor, the Wells’Built Museum of African American History & Culture.

Prior to joining P.A.S.T, Inc., Ms. Thompson worked for almost 20 years in pharmaceutical and business to business sales.  This experience has been essential in understanding what drives customer  satisfaction, mutually beneficial partnerships and the furtherance of organizational goals through marketing and brand management.
