The Michigan Chronicle, the region’s oldest, most respected African American newspaper, is celebrating 10 years of excellence as 51 honorees are inducted into the Women of Excellence class of 2017. The celebration will take place Thursday, April 20, at MGM Grand Detroit.
ANA-Michigan Recording Secretary and Region 7 member, Bridget A. Leonard, DNP, will be among those inducted to the 2017 Women of Excellence class. Dr. Leonard is the Director of Patient Care Services, Nursing Office Operations at RIM, for Detroit Medical Center.
For a decade, the Michigan Chronicle has celebrated local African American women who inspire others through vision and leadership, exceptional achievements, and participation in community service. Those who have been selected have shown exceptional success in business, community involvement, and philanthropy.
Honorees were chosen from hundreds of nominees and will join an elite group comprised of the area’s most influential women. “These distinguished women not only have professional success to their credit, but they are beacons for the African American community throughout the region,” said Hiram Jackson, CEO of Real Times Media and publisher of Michigan Chronicle.
