Minneapolis, MN, Oct. 17, 2013 /3BL Media/ - Global professional services company ARAMARK today announced that Marsha Edwards, President and CEO of Nashville's Martha O'Bryan Center, is being honored with the 2013 Peter B. Goldberg ARAMARK Building Community Executive Leadership Award in recognition of her innovative and inspirational work on behalf of community centers and her commitment to neighborhood revitalization.
...
"This award acknowledges and supports leadership excellence by showcasing outstanding executives like Marsha Edwards, and the work of the Martha O'Bryan Center."
...
"I am truly honored to be recognized and accept this wonderful award with the full understanding that it is only with the incredible work of the Center's whole family - staff, residents, and board members -- that this is possible," Edwards said. "At Martha O'Bryan Center, we truly believe that relationships and fellowship fuel change and our greatest asset is being located in the middle of Cayce Place Homes. Thank you to ARAMARK, UNCA and the Alliance for this award and their national leadership and investment."
Edwards joined Martha O'Bryan Center in 2001 and under her leadership the organization has grown nearly five-fold, and today offers comprehensive services to thousands of children and adults to help them with education, employment, parenting, crisis services and youth development. An inspirational leader and strong advocate for those in need, Edwards has formed partnerships in major sectors of Nashville to bring voice, opportunity and hope to children and families.
In 2011, Martha O'Bryan Center was one of only 15 organizations nationwide to receive a federal Department of Education Promise Neighborhood Planning Grant to help revitalize Nashville's underserved neighborhoods. The Promise Neighborhoods program aims to address significant challenges faced by students and families living in high-poverty communities by providing resources to plan and implement a continuum of services from early learning to college and career. Plans include a range of services from improving a neighborhood's health, safety, and stability to expanding access to learning technology and Internet connectivity, and boosting family engagement in student learning.
Edwards and the Martha O'Bryan Center are leading the Promise Neighborhood initiative in Nashville, collaborating with 20 other organizations, including the Nashville Public Schools, the Metro Police Department, the Metropolitan Development and Housing Authority, Vanderbilt Children's Hospital, and United Way of Metropolitan Nashville.

Martha O'Bryan CEO Marsha Edwards explains 'Break the Line'
...
Marsha Edwards, CEO of Martha O'Bryan Center, discusses the "Break the Line" marketing initiative designed to bring awareness to poverty in Nashville. Edwards spoke during a panel discussion organized by Communities in Schools in Nashville.
About 100 people attended the discussion, and CIS Nashville Liaison Francie Hunt asked Edwards what Break the Line meant, and why someone should care about parts of Nashville that are impoverished.
...
Edwards replied that the current rate of underachievement is unacceptable and could actually imperil the city's future.
Edwards then asked: What if East Nashvillians demanded more from the schools - and themselves? She called on East Nashvillians to change the conversation about the city's public schools.
"We can't just worry about, 'Where is my kid zoned?' or 'Where is my neighbor's kid zoned?' We've got to think, we've got to change this now," Edwards said.
"We could do something that's not being done in Nashville, that's not being done in Tennessee, that's not being done in very many places," she said.
