CBC President & CEO Honored By Local Minority Organization
CBC President & CEO Jim Goodmon received the Ashanti, meaning “thank you,” award for being an advocate of minorities.
The Raleigh-Wake Citizens Association M-PAC presented its first annual Ashanti awards at a banquet on Saturday, October 19, 2002. Capitol Broadcasting Company President & CEO Jim Goodmon was honored as one of ten recipients; CBC VP of Community Relations Paul Pope accepted the award on his behalf.
RWCA M-PAC, a non-partisan component of the RWCA especially devoted to promoting and monitoring the interests of African Americans and other minorities, presented the Ashanti awards to civic leaders who have served the community well through business initiatives, charitable contributions, faith-based efforts or volunteer activities. Ashanti, is the Swahili word for thank you, and the awards were developed to do just that.
Larry Dickens, RWCA M-PAC Chair took part in the event.
The seventy-year old organization began to serve as an advocate for an oppressed people.
The banquet began at 7:00pm and took place at the McKimmon Center on the NC State campus. CBC served as a gold sponsor of the event.
