The 100 Black Men of DeKalb has recruited 13 new members to serve as mentors to youths enrolled in the organization’s Leadership Academy.

 

The organization’s president, Cornelius Stafford, said the new members join a group of men devoted to training young people to become leaders. He said as the group’s new president, he plans to continue building on the organization’s legacy.

 

“When you choose to be significant, you are willing to sacrifice your time and resources to serve the children of underserved communities in DeKalb County,” said Stafford.

 

The DeKalb 100 hosted an all-white affair at Chateau Elan to install the 13 new members, who represent an array of professionals:

Emmanuel Ajarvon     President/CEO, Advance Carpet Restoration, Inc.

Maurice Calhoun        Facilities Maintenance Administrator, City of Atlanta                                                         

Cleveland Crumbley   Sr. Manager, Enterprise Data Services Cox Communications

Mawuli Davis             Founding partner of the Davis-Bozeman Law Firm

Andre Deas                Director, Youth Sports Department for Wade Walker Family YMCA

Bauer Harris               Logistics Program Manager, UTC Aerospace Systems

Kenneth Kirk               Director, IT Services for Sons Automotive Group                          

Chris Kunney             Managing Partner and Healthcare IT Strategist, Infinite Options Technology Consulting Group, LLC

David Manuel            Executive Director, Porter Sanford III Performing Arts Center

Steaven Misher          Teacher, Clayton County Schools

Wayne Morris             Senior Systems Engineer, IBM Corporation

Temano Shurland       Consultant, Deloitte & Touche LLP

“The strength of any organization like ours is measured by the effectiveness of their programs, the ability to recruit and maintain members and support from sponsors in the form of contributions and donations,” said Stafford. “Last year at the National 100 Black Men of America Conference we were awarded “Mentor of the Year” and “Mentee of the Year” for the work we have done. The only thing left for us to do, is to make sure we get the word out to existing and potential sponsors, about the life-changing transformation taking place with our students through the Leadership Academy.”  

The DeKalb County chapter of the 100 Black Men of America has been active in the community for the past 22 years. They can be reached at (404) 241- 1338 or www.dekalb100blackmen.org. Donations and contributions are welcomed.
