I am just one of many who are doing various things to advance progress in our communities. The NAACP recognized our efforts, and for that, I am grateful to them. In speaking with other recipients, I found that we were all bound together by one thing—service to our communities. It wasn’t so much our station or place professionally as it was how we utilize our talents, gifts, and influence to help others.”
