From Staff Reports

Columbiana resident Joyce Lewis was named as the NAACP 2017 Image Award recipient from the NAACP Coffee County Branch on Saturday, April 8. Lewis received the award at the chapter’s annual Freedom Fund Banquet at the Enterprise Civic Center.


According to the letter notifying Lewis she had won, Lewis has “made significant progress in life and [their] community,” and is “an image to look up to, and a beacon of light for others to follow by setting the stage for progress for others through politics, education, religion, leadership, community service, civic affairs and minority business.”

According to the NAACP’s website, the Image Award aims to recognize African Americans for their contributions to film, television, music and literature.
