It earned Grant Coonley, general manager of the Hilton Los Angeles Airport, the 2007 Living Legacy Award at the recent 2007 Black History Month Living Legacy Awards.
In addition, Mr. Coonley
received a Commendation from the State of California award for leadership and community involvement from 51st California District Representative, the Honorable Curren D. Price, Jr.
and the Hilton Los Angeles Airport
participate in many community programs, from career day at Morningside High School
in Inglewood, to a crucial job alliance with Bishop Williamson and the 100 Christian Methodist Episcopal (CME) churches he
works with to find jobs for their congregations.
"It's a lot of work, but there is little that could be more gratifying," said Coonley
wasn't the only one singled out at this year's 2007 Black History Month Living Legacy Awards and Gospel Musical celebration; Hilton Hotels Corporation
was recognized for its leadership and commitment toward creating career opportunities for those considering employment in the hospitality industry as well as other community efforts.
The company celebrated Black History Month with three honors (so far) this year.
