Brookhaven honored with Corporate Champion Award

The City of Brookhaven has received the Corporate Champion Award granted by the Latin American Association during the 29th Annual Compañeros Award Luncheon, according to a press release.

The 2018 Corporate Champion Award was presented to Brookhaven for being “exceedingly supportive of the Atlanta Latino community and has diligently promoted diversity and immigrant inclusion along Buford Highway, metro-Atlanta’s famous international corridor,” said LAA Board Member At-Large Willie Rivero.

“We are humbled to receive such an award from the Latin American Association,” Mayor John Ernst said. “As such a diverse City, Brookhaven prides itself in immersing ourselves in other cultures and serve all our residents equally.”

“Brookhaven has been called the safest City in DeKalb County, is an official Welcoming City, home to diverse neighborhoods, numerous live-work-play communities, a diverse economic landscape, and a thriving multicultural population that is 24.2 percent Latino, in contrast to Georgia overall, which is 10 percent Latino,” said Rivero.

The Compañeros Award Luncheon is celebrated annually to honor exceptional organizations and individuals who make meaningful contributions to advance the well-being of individuals and families in the community.
