On Common Ground News owners Glenn and Valerie J. Morgan joined two Rockdale Government officials and two business partners who were honored by Nehemiah Empowerment Group Ministries, Inc. on Feb. 24 in Conyers.
Along with the Morgans, the ministry also recognized Magistrate Judge Phinia Aten; Sheriff Eric Levett; and Elaine Davis-Nickens and Cheryl Miles Board, partnes of Connections Consulting, with “GraceAwards” for their work in the community. Sheriff Levett and Judge Aten also served as guest speakers at the program.
The award presentation was part of the church’s Black History program, “A Celebration of Black History.” The service included praise and worship from Nehemiah choir members and the Virtuous Praise Ensemble, as well as performances from local sibling-recording artists, “Amayze,” and the Nehemiah Dance Ministry.
After members and guests shared black history reflections and tributes to historical black figures, the program closed with a singing of “We Shall Overcome.”
