President and Founder of MEC John Middlebrooks was honored by Men Aiming Higher January 16, 2015 for his exemplary work within our community.
When asked why was John selected, the organizations said, “We (Men Aiming Higher) value his hard work as a selfless social worker and a great reformer. It is our goal to share with the Prince George’s County community how he has elbowed his way through adversity, and worked hard for the underserved, underrepresented and the needy. He has been a beacon of light for all those who want to follow in his footsteps. We have been observing your methods and we have learned a great deal. You have always been our ideal of a “Change Maker”.”
John is very excited and appreciates this acknowledgement, saying, “My vision is about people helping people reach more of their potential through well rounded support. More importantly my names is on the award, but I accept this award on behalf of all my volunteers and sponsors who helped me stand in the gap.”
