About Willie Mae

Humble Beginnings, Strong Family Values, Christian Faith

Growing up in Abbeville, South Carolina, along with one sister and three brothers, Willie Mae Oyogoa experienced the meaning of strong family values and Christian faith. Willie Mae witnessed her mother’s struggles and efforts to see her children succeed in life. Through her mother’s example, Willie Mae learned the significance of being honest, hard-working, patient, and maintaining irrefutable integrity. Willie Mae’s mother also taught her the importance of being of service in helping others.

From humble beginnings, Willie Mae completed her undergraduate studies at Georgia State University while working full-time. She knows the financial challenges students face while pursuing a college education and the tremendous debt they carry upon graduation. Willie Mae began her professional career in an entry-level position and advanced through the corporate ranks of a significant Georgia-based company, retiring as a Labor Relations Coordinator in 2012. As a small business owner, Willie Mae has operated a successful home-based travel agency for the past 16 years.

Committed to serving others, Willie Mae was elected as a charter member of the 1987 Pilot Club of Rome and served as coordinator of the Internal Affairs Division. For her years of dedicated service as an “outstanding example of what a Pilot should be. . .”, she was named Pilot of the Year in the 1989-1990 term. In addition, Willie Mae has worked with the 4-H Club and volunteered for five years at the Greater Community Church of God in Christ Kings Kidz Summer Camp teaching children lifestyle skills.

The values of hard work, tenacity, and Christian faith were instilled in her as a child and bolstered her current desire to use her experiences to serve her community. Willie Mae has firsthand experience with the challenges families face to provide opportunities for their children during tough economic times. Willie Mae is also familiar with how legislative policies ultimately impact employees of large corporations and particularly small businesses.

Willie Mae is seeking this opportunity to represent the constituents of District 44 in the Georgia House of Representatives in response to a call to serve.
