Vonnice J. Boone
Vonnice is a mom, wife, doctoral candidate, ordained minister, and entrepreneur. She has lived in NW Arkansas for seven years. She is the daughter of a single Black mother, who raised her to be a strong Black woman and to treat people with respect.
She is grateful to live in and raise her family in Rogers. By many accounts, she should have been a product of her upbringing - living in poverty, relying on WIC, surrounded by violent crime, and struggling in a single parent household. Living in Northwest Arkansas has afforded Vonnice and her family more opportunities, and she wants to pay that forward by making the community better.
Vonnice is a changemaker and wants to represent the parts of the community that aren’t being served. She wants to be the voice for those whose voices aren't being heard. She wants to support more housing options so that everyone can have access to good homes, extend resources such as the Rogers Activity Center and Senior Center, and create a diversity and inclusion board.
Vonnice is honored to have been nominated as one of the 50 most influential leaders in Arkansas in 2022 by Arkansas Money and Politics. She was inducted in the 2021 40 Under Forty cohort. She is a Black woman who is a force to be reckoned with, and she will stand to make change, friends, and history in Rogers.
