Congratulations to our Birmingham Leadership Class of 2012
The Birmingham MS Leadership Class campaign is a fund raising campaign that honors senior level professionals for their outstanding contributions to the business, civic and cultural betterment of the city. Each honoree in the class was nominated by an Advisory Council member who identified these individuals to be among the best and brightest in their field. Shanisty Myers, CBS 42 News Anchor and Reporter served as emcee.
Meredith Ray Calhoun, Vice President of Corporate Oversight at Corporate Realty Associates, served as the Honorary Chair of the Birmingham MS Leadership Class of 2012 and presented each honoree with the prestigious Leadership Award at a reception on May 3rd at Workplay.
