Congratulation Ms. Avery

Last Thursday I had the honor of attending the Rochester Women's Network presentation of the RWN 2013 "W" Award for our own WDKX general manager Marietta Avery.

Marietta received the "W" award which is in its 27th year. The award is presented annually and is given to a woman who goes above and beyond to uplift, inspire, motivate, empower, and influence other women to succeed through her own example.

Being in the company of such positive women who have become successful despite their struggles was not only encouraging but electrifying.

As each of the woman nominated came up to share their story I was able to see a little bit of their characteristics within myself. Which was a bit scary because I thought wow, that is me someone who influences others to grow, a leader!

Believe me when I tell you I never would of thought in a million years I would be where I am today especially, being a part of the legacy Andrew Langston created 39 years ago WDKX-FM.

Anyone who knows me knows I am a person who at one point did not like to talk, express how I felt, or smile. Imagine that! So yeah, I'm still having a hard time believing I am serving my community through radio.

With that said, having the opportunity to attend this award ceremony has solidified for me that those shoes I've had buried in my closet now fit. It's time to dust them off put them on and get to stepping I have a community to serve.

Marietta Avery congratulations and thank you for being our servant leader and my mentor!
