As part of this year’s celebration of Black History Month, the Atlanta Hawks are honoring prominent African-American leaders during home games in February for their civic contributions, accomplishments and leadership. During Wednesday’s night game against the Minnesota Timberwolves, APS Superintendent Dr. Beverly L. Hall and her work to tranform the district were recognized. Among her accomplishments cited were her being named as the American Association of School Administrators’ 2009 National Superintendent of the Year; Georgia Superintendent of the Year by the Georgia School Superintendents Association; and as one of the 100 most influential Georgians by Georgia Trend magazine.
By the way, the Hawks really honored Dr. Hall by winning, 98-92! For more photos, check out the gallery here.
