Ms. Strambler is the proud Mother of a teenage daughter and two younger sons that she adores. Tiere’ always knew that she wanted to make a difference and she had a vision of just how she wanted to do that. Her vision was to prepare teenage girls for life after high school by equipping them with the skills and knowledge they need to be successful and safe. Realizing that there are no programs that exist like this, she made it her mission to make her vision a reality. Ms. Strambler took the necessary steps to start this non-profit program with her co-founders and family members, Kimberley Strambler and Kiki Strambler.
Kimberley Strambler, known as Kim was born and raised in Midland, Texas. She graduated from Midland Lee, attended Midland College where she later graduated with an Associates in Criminal Justice. Ms. Strambler then began working at the Midland County jail as a booking clerk and later promoted to a Jailer.
In 2013, Kim attended the Permian Basin Law Enforcement Academy, where she trained to become a Peace Officer. She became the first African-American female deputy for the Midland County Sheriff’s Office. Ms. Strambler worked on patrol for 4 ½ years until she transferred to Courthouse Security where she had been working until recently. Kim now works as a school resource officer for Greenwood High School. Kim has a total of 15 years working in Law Enforcement and serving the community.
In the midst of it all, Ms. Strambler is raising her three beautiful children, ages 15, 12, and 8. She had a chance to speak at different community events and churches reaching our young people and would love to continue working with our youth. Kim’s love for helping and inspiring our youth lead her to link up with her family members Tiere’ Strambler and Kiki Strambler to create B.A.D.D (Beautiful And Dedicated Divas). Co-founding a program for young girls that will help with their self-esteem, financial planning for the future, self defense knowledge and so much more. We are excited for the program being that there is not a program of this type in our area and we get to do what we love, giving back to our youth.
Beautiful and Dedicated Divas provides educational services in life skills preparing for adulthood. We provide the following courses:
This is a 6 month program that meets every 1st Saturday of the month from 10am-2pm, excluding the 1 Saturday, RAD training will be held on that particular Saturday and that is an 8-hour course, so the hours will be from 10am-6pm for that one day. Graduation will be held at the Senior Gala. Both Junior and Senior graduates will participate in the Gala.
There is an interactive workbook that guides each senior through the program. The week course will consist of a combination of reading, worksheets, classroom exercises and real life experience. Each diva will receive community service hours that will be eligible to be used dually for high school and accepted by Midland College. Each diva that completes the program will receive a scholarship. Now that we have added a Junior Program, all Junior divas will receive their scholarship their Senior year after completing a 1-day refresher course.
