The awards were presented at the Trendsetters first Black History Recognition Banquet Saturday night at Brundidge Station.Trendsetter Henry Everett said seven individuals were selected to be recognized and honored for their loyalty and dedication to the Brundidge community.“The Trendsetters Club was organized three years ago for the purpose of setting an example for young people and as a way of giving back to our community,” Everett said. “At our first annual Black History Month event, we wanted to recognize some of the people that have been examples and leaders in the Brundidge and have made a positive impact on the community.” Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson Those recognized were Brundidge Police Chief Moses Davenport, the city’s first African American police chief; Joseph Boyd, longtime assistant principal at Pike County High School; Lois Robinson, retired education at Pike County Elementary School and Pike Training School; Sylvia Thurman, retired educator at PCES; Ann Andrews, retired educator at PCES, Constance Bivins, retired educator at PCES; and Lola Felton, former secretary at PCES.Everett said Davenport has had positive influence on the community as the city’s police chief and a community leader.“All the others that were honored have been leaders in education and there is no more important role that anyone can play,” Everett said. “Without teachers, young people would have nowhere to go in the community. These educators have set examples for young people, black and white, and guided them to be successful young men and women. These seven people have been a positive influence on our community for a long time.” Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits You Might Like Intern program gets high marks The Pike County Economic Development Corporation (PCEDC) has initiated a high school student internship program with local businesses and schools… read more Trendsetters honor community leaders Book Nook to reopen Latest Stories Published 3:00 am Saturday, March 5, 2016 Skipcenter_img Around the WebMd: Do This Immediately if You Have Diabetes (Watch)Blood Sugar BlasterIf You Have Ringing Ears Do This Immediately (Ends Tinnitus)Healthier LivingHave an Enlarged Prostate?
