The Association for the Study of African American Life and History held their 88th Annual Black History Luncheon on Saturday, February 22nd here in Washington, D.C. The Living Legacy Awards, co-sponsored by ASALH and Farmers Insurance, honors the many unsung African Americans across the country engaged in extraordinary work to improve communities, institutions, organizations and family life.
The Living Legacy honorees are men and women “educators” in all fields of education and from many arenas. These include teachers, administrators, historians, academic writers, and trailblazers from institutions such as public, private and nontraditional primary and secondary schools, institutions of higher learning, government and community organizations.
Here at Prince George’s Community College, we are proud to share with the community that Dr. Charlene Dukes is among this prestigious group of honorees. As president of the College, Dr. Dukes not only demonstrates dynamic leadership across the campus, in the community, and throughout higher education, but she exemplifies the importance of forward thinking as a means to empower others.
Congratulations, Dr. Dukes!
