The Mack Arthur Shell - Humanitarian Award was created to honor the life and legacy of the late Mack Arthur Shell, who exemplified what it means to be a servant leader in the community.
The award recognizes and shines a spotlight on local leaders and advocates who though their hard work and efforts are making a tremendous difference in the Hampton Roads community.
The event is organized by Tonya Shell, the daughter of the late Mack Arthur Shell along with The African American Creative Community Series - AACCS and the Norfolk Public Library (Cultural Diversity Committee).
This year's awards ceremony was a night to remember, taking place at the iconic Slover Library in beautiful downtown Norfolk.
The evening was genuinely touching as honorees and recipients each shared their stories of the works they are doing in their communities.
Alpha Group Security’s President – Jason Tassinari is quoted as saying “I am both honored and humbled to be a recipient of this year's Mack Arthur Shell - Humanitarian Award. Often, we see so much negativity in today's world that it can sometimes be hard to remember that there are so many incredible people doing such amazing things in our communities. This award takes time to stop to recognize those individuals and highlight the posative impact they are making on our communities."
