Courier celebrates 50 of the region’s female trailblazers
Fifty of the Greater Pittsburgh region’s female African-American trailblazers will be celebrated at the New Pittsburgh Courier’s 2014 50 Women of Excellence luncheon to be held Thursday, Dec. 11 at 12 p.m. in the ballroom of the Westin Convention Center Hotel in downtown Pittsburgh.
The honor recognizes top-notch ladies who, through their time and talents within their various professional sectors of life, have enriched the lives of others in their communities. Honorees are selected from nominations submitted by the community and the Courier’s readership.
“I feel the 50 Women of Excellence program is important because it highlights those who through their example are considered role models for our young people and our community. It also highlights these women who love their community and who are focused on high standards of living in every aspect of their lives, their jobs, their homes and in their volunteerism,” said Jean Bryant, the founder of the Miss Black Teenage and Mr. African-American programs, and the Courier’s 2012 50 Women of Excellence Legacy Honoree. “I would encourage that once you have received the award, recognize the honor of it because it says everything beautiful about you having been chosen.”
