Well known and highly respected Radio/Media Personality, Sheila Stewart died in an Atlanta car crash on Thursday. We are deeply touched by this news. Not only was Sheila one of the leading radio and media personalities in the DC metro area, she was a key facilitator in the growth of Street Intell as a recognized media brand. She held open that door and allowed us to walk through.
Growing up as a DMV native, it has been customary to hear Sheila’s beautiful voice on the Tom Joyner radio show updating us on community news. She was a decorated and award winning media personality, author, mentor and the Director of News and Community Affairs at the Radio One studio.
She leaves behind a long remarkable legacy of dedication and service; spanning over 20 years. Shelia was a persistent figure in the community. She organized countless charitable benefits and always uplifted and promoted the idea of service and giving back. As a member of Alpha Kappa Alpha sorority we see how that commitment to “serving all mankind” shined through everything she was involved in. Shelia was a beautiful spirit filled with bountiful joy and inspiration. We honor her spirit and legacy by acknowledging all of her accomplishments and all that she has done for the DC metro community and beyond. Rest in paradise to the “Queen of the Community”, Shelia Stewart.
