      Marks of Excellence Award Luncheon

      Join the National Forum for Black Public Administrators (NFBPA) Central Arizona Chapter for our annual Marks of Excellence Awards Luncheon at the Phoenix Convention Center on October 24! This year we will present two African American Public Administrators with the Marks of Excellence Award who have achieved extraordinary success in the field of public management while demonstrating an unselfish commitment to the community. We will also be honoring our Calvin C. and Georgie M. Goode Scholarship and Jaques Avent Scholarship winners. This year's keynote speaker is Mona Dixon, Teen Empowerment Leader, International Keynote Speakers, & Coach.   About the Luncheon Keynote Speaker  Mona Dixon, Teen Empowerment Leader, International Keynote Speakers, & Coach Mona and her family lived on the streets and moved from one homeless shelter to another until the age of 13. A few short years later she was honored by The President of the United States in the Oval Office. After receiving her coveted Boys & Girls Clubs of America "National Youth of the Year Award," Mona was appointed to serve as the youngest member of a U.S. Presidential Community Service Committee alongside four other distinguished individuals. At 18, Mona was also named one of the "Most Influential Black Women," alongside Oprah and Michelle Obama, by Essence Magazine. This has all led to her being awarded over $100,000 in scholarships, sharing the stage with "A" list celebrities, being featured in the national media, and starring in a national campaign commercial with Mark Wahlberg. Mona, at 26, is currently pursuing her Ph. D in Organizational Leadership and empowering others while speaking for corporate companies, schools, youth organizations, fundraisers, graduations, parent organizations, and homeless shelters.
