Meet ... Pam Bosley
Pam graduated magna cum laude from Olivet University with a B.A. in business administration and spent over 20 years in the world of banking. But after one of her sons, Terrell Bosley, was murdered at the age of 18 on the grounds of a church in 2006, she changed directions to make a difference in the lives of youth. As the ARK’s Violence Prevention Manager, Pam has empowered young people to be leaders and self-advocates, guiding them to discover their own voices and abilities to bring change to their communities. Pam is also the co-founder of Purpose Over Pain, an organization that was founded to offer support to parents who have lost children to violence, advocate for common sense gun measures, and provide a safe space and mentorship for youth. Pam is also founder of the Tercel Bosley Anti-Violence Association which gives away new coats and food during the winter months to those who need as well as providing a safe haven for youth during basketball tournaments.
