With so much happening in the news today from the crisis in the Middle East to the Ebola virus, it’s sometimes hard to find anything positive to share. Well, that’s not the case here. On November 2, thirteen African-American women will be honored for their tireless work at the 11th Annual African-American Women Achievers celebration in Deptford, New Jersey.

The Kappa Community Development Corporation along with the Burlington-Camden Alumni Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi, Inc., recognizes African-American women who have made a difference in business and community leadership locally and nationally.

The president of the Kappa Community Development said, “Each year we salute phenomenal women who have made major contributions in their communities.”

Here are the 2014 African-American women achievers:

      1. Dr. Jeanne J. Arnold, Gettysburg College, chief diversity officer;
      2. Charlene Brown, AT&T regional vice president of external affairs, who is also the 2014 Rosa Parks honoree;
      3. Michelle Brown Dutton, Verizon Communications, vice president of global network systems;
      4. Gina Merritt Epps, South Jersey Industries, general counsel;
      5. Dawn Frazier, Leave the Details to Me, founder and CEO;
      6. Jennifer Lewis-Hall, Emmy-nominated journalist, author, motivational speaker, and entrepreneur;
      7. Dr. Althea Hankins, a board-certified physician and general practitioner;
      8. Sharon L. Hopson, United Health Care, network contract manager, Eastern Pennsylvania;
      9. Dr. Lori Lewis, a podiatrist and surgeon specializing in surgery of the foot and ankle;
      10. Shonda McClain, The Philadelphia Tribune and Sojourner Magazine award-winning editor;
      11. Regine Metellus, University of Pennsylvania School of Social Policy and Practice, executive director of finance and administration;
      12. Sharon Scott-Rogers, Burlington County College, associate dean of educational services;
      13. Annie Williams Wright, 1955 Olympics qualifier, Bridgeton School District educator, coach and African-American woman trailblazer”

The proceeds from the event will be used to develop an Academic Achievement Center in South Jersey.
