VIRGINIA'S CELEBRATION OF INTERNATIONAL MEN'S DAY USHERED IN BY MRS. ODETTA WRIGHT, VIRGINIA (USA) REGIONAL COORDINATOR - 2012 INTERNATIONAL MEN'S DAY
RICHMOND, VIRGINIA (USA) -- Virginia's observance of 2012 International Men's Day was ushered in on Sunday, 18 November 2012 under the innovative leadership of MRS. ODETTA WRIGHT, the Virginia (USA) Regional Coordinator for 2012 International Men's Day and the Co-Founder of Father Figure Enterprises LLC (www.fatherfigure.org) at the New Deliverance Evangelistic Church (www.ndec.net) in Richmond, Virginia. 2012 International Men's Day in Virginia spawned the inauguration of the Global Visionary Award and its first recipient was BISHOP GERALD O. GLENN. BISHOP GLENN was instrumental in creating the "Men of Tomorrow" mentorship program for boys and young men which was launched on 2011 International Men's Day. In 2012, the "Men of Tomorrow" mentorship program for boys and young men was launched in Botswana on 2012 International's Men Day as a result of a collaboration between MRS. WRIGHT, MS. GENEUVIVE TWALA, the Botswana Coordinator for 2012 International Men's Day, BISHOP GLENN, and ELDER THOMAS POWELL, who serves as the Coordinator of the "Men of Tomorrow" mentorship program at the New New Deliverance Evangelistic Church (www.ndec.net)
When reached for comment, MRS. WRIGHT offered the following:
"I have enjoyed seeing the International Men's Day 2012 events all around the world. Here in Virginia we presented Bishop Gerald O. Glenn with the first ever Global Visionary Award. This award will be presented each year to a deserving gentleman from Virginia who meets the criteria presented in the International Men's Day core principles.
Bishop Glenn has been instrumental in creating the Men of Tomorrow program and will be consulting us as we implement the program in Botswana. Bishop Glenn and the congregation were excited about the award and our collaboration with Botswana. I am truly excited about the future of International Men's Day and the Men of Tomorrow Mentoring Program. Bishop Glenn and the congregation were excited about the award and our collaboration with Botswana. Here are pictures from the ceremony . . . ."
