On February 16, 2017 Parity Inc. will be honoring 10 distinguished African American men who make the Dayton and surrounding vicinity a better community.
These men have beaten the odds and exemplify a spirit of excellence by their outstanding efforts as doctors, nationally recognized lawyers, businessmen, pastors, authors, fire-fighters, educators and engineers.
As honorable men, they have given back to our community by volunteering and actively participating as mentors, coaches, role models, counselors, community leaders and board members of various non-for-profit organizations and professional clubs.
Parity, Inc. has been honoring African American men of excellence for a quarter of a century. We don't know what this community would be like without these men, but we do know that our neighborhoods and the city is a better place because of them.
Our annual Top 10 Awards not only honor African American males, it also gives hope and exposure to our youth and other up and coming leaders.
"The great work that you do in the Community sets you aside from others." _The Dayton G-Men.
"Thank you for teaching us that life is 10% of what happens to us and 90% how we react to it. Your work ethics have been nothing short of motivational. You have made us all proud to call you Husband, Dad, Paw-Paw and Leader." _Family of Leroy V. Edwards
