OUR LEGACY – 36th Annual Harry Jerome Awards, 2018

Hello Beautiful People!

The Black Business and Professional Association (BBPA), held the 36th Annual Harry Jerome Awards on Saturday, April 28th, 2018.  It was an evening of black excellence and a celebration of our rich legacy.  I am always pleased to support this important gala, it makes a positive impact in the black community.

I was thrilled for the 12 recipients who received The Harry Jerome Awards in the respective areas: Academic, Arts, Athletics, Business, Community Service, Diversity, Entertainment, Health Service, Leadership, Lifetime Achievement, Media and the President’s Award.

Kelvin and I supported, saluted and celebrated our friend, Immediate Past President of the BBPA, Pauline Christian, the recipient of the 2018 President’s Award.

It was a pleasure having an important and relevant exchange with the Member of Parliament for Whitby, ON, Celina Caesar-Chavannes, regarding the balance of success, and at times “It’s ok to not be ok!” (#itsoktonotbeok), We all need a quick minute to recalibrate – I know you will agree.
