Commissioner Bruce Holmes Receives Prestigious Award from the Henry County Branch of the NAACP

Henry County District V Commissioner Bruce Holmes was the proud recipient of the Henry County Chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People’s (NAACP) President’s Award at its annual Freedom Fund Banquet, held Friday, March 15 at the Merle Manders Conference Center in Stockbridge.
The President’s Award is traditionally given to an individual or group to recognize special achievement in furthering the cause of civil rights and public service. Holmes was selected to receive the award because of his work as a Henry County Commissioner to help create jobs and promote economic development in the County, his community service and particularly for his work on behalf of young people through the Commissioner Bruce Holmes Youth Foundation, an organization that offers a mentoring program to our County’s young people as well as various sports leagues and athletic opportunities.
“This was completely unexpected.  I was very honored to receive this award for my community service and economic development efforts and glad that they saw enough in the achievements I have made to be recognized in front of my peers in this way,” said Commissioner Holmes.  “I would also like to commend President Eugene Edwards and his wife Annette for putting on a first class banquet. With them at the helm, the NAACP programs have gotten better and better, and are always operated in complete excellence.”
Since being elected to represent District V, Commissioner Holmes has been honored by two prominent minority business organizations for his work in the community. He is the first and only person from Henry County to achieve these honors. He was also named the 2012 Commissioner of the Year by the Georgia Minority Business Awards (GMBA) which is an award is presented to individuals who exemplify leadership, commitment to industrious and professional growth, charity towards their fellow man and most importantly their belief in living "success."
