FROM STAFF REPORTS
Daytona Beach City Commissioner Paula Reed was recognized by Bethune-Cookman University and Onyx Magazine Sept. 10 during a reception held at the Mary McLeod Bethune Performing Arts Center for her commitment of support to the university and for other civic accomplishments.
Onyx is a Florida-based publication that focuses on the accomplishments of African-Americans. She was quoted in the publication as saying, “The real difference begins with local government. If not you, then who? If not now, then when? Begin by serving on a local board. Often times the decisions made at City Hall effect and affect us more than we realize. Let’s make a difference.”
Reed serves in Zone 6 where her district includes half of Bethune-Cookman.
Mayor Derrick Henry and Commissioner Patrick Henry have also been highlighted in the publication.
