Burlington County, N.J.—Limousine Association of New Jersey (LANJ) Executive Director Barry Lefkowitz was honored with the 2013 Public Service Award by the Southern Burlington County National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (sbcNAACP) on Nov. 1 in Cinnaminson, N.J. The award was presented to him by U.S. Congressman Rob Andrews and N.J. State Senator Diane Allen.
Lefkowitz, having grown up in foster homes and eventually putting himself through college at 18 toward a successful future, has dedicated much of his life to working for economic development in Africa and scholarship opportunities for disadvantaged inner-city youth. According to Rev. Dr. Ken Gordon Jr., President of the sbcNAACP, Lefkowitz was the unanimous winner amongst committee members amid the ten other nominees for this year’s award.
“We are extremely excited about Barry receiving the award,” says Gordon. “There is no one more deserving than him.”
