On May 11, 2017 ECI hosted the Marcia Johnson Outstanding Public Service Award Reception to honor this year’s honorees: Georgia Provost, Community Leader; Natasha Malone, TSU Student Leader and Annam Community Development Corporation, Community Organization. The purpose of the Marcia Johnson Outstanding Public Service Award is to, among other things, recognize TSU students, community leaders and organizations that are committed to service in support of traditionally disenfranchised communities. The award recognizes their “strong voices at the table,” which serve to improve the lives of individuals in our communities. The award is named after Professor Marcia Johnson, founder of ECI, who exemplifies what it means to be that voice at the table. She is a mentor many and an inspiration to us all.
