MoCo Moguls Awards Brings Grammy-Style Event to Biscoe (original post Courier-Tribune Dec 16, 2017)
On Dec. 9, MoCo Life 910 hosted its first annual MoCo Moguls Awards.
The purpose of the event was to give those who attended and the honorees the special star-studded red carpet feeling of being at a Grammy-style awards show. Leaders of the community were honored for dedicating their time, energy and resources to building a healthy community environment for its children and families.
This event took place at East Montgomery High School, hosted by Jamal Moore. Live entertainment was provided by Von Della and her band out of Fayetteville, and photography by Trust and Believe Photography.
Those who attended the event helped to brighten the lives of children for the holidays by bringing toy donations to support children receiving services through Montgomery County Social Services.
Among those honored were Dr. Jack Cagle, Pearle Pratt, Harry Brower, Sherri Allgood, Russell Bogan and Mickey Cagle. It was a privilege to recognize such dedicated and humble individuals.
MoCo Life 910 takes pride in acknowledging the students of Montgomery County Schools and beyond for being outstanding scholars, athletes and leaders amongst their peers. Through MoCo Life 910’s Free to Learn program, each month a different student is spotlighted for achievements. The amazing and talented Student Spotlights of 2017 were also recognized during this event. These students are Jabria Ingram, Dewone Wright, Kellan King, Jakayla Christian, Jamie Christian II, Zakya Chambers and Araybian Lilly.
Special surprise award presentations were given to Jandavian Lilly, The MoCo Life 910 Volunteer of the Year, for going above and beyond the call of duty in supporting the MoCo Life 910 mission. MoCo Life 910 Founder Tremayne Ingram was presented with the G.O.O.N Award (Graciously Overcame Obstacles and Negativity). It is presented to an individual who, regardless of their circumstances, refused to let anyone’s perception of them become their reality. Ingram received this award for being a visionary and pioneer to create programs that support the community.
This event was sponsored by Montgomery County Schools, The Bobby Martin Foundation, Cakes By Jess and a host of others who provided food and desserts for the reception.
The mission of MoCo Life 910 is to provide the empowerment and motivation individuals need to create their own opportunities and positive life outcomes. The success of the MoCo Mogul Awards helped to fulfill the most important part of the mission, “empowerment.”
