“I am beyond honored to receive this recognition,” said Victor Edozien. Accolades may come my way but when such recognition comes from our own community it is inestimable. I am humbled and appreciative in ways words cannot adequately express. This recognition from the Michigan Chronicle, a leading African American newspaper, and being inducted into a group with many individuals that I have admired and respected their professional and civic accomplishments is quite awe-inspiring. I am thrilled to be part of this group – The Men of Excellence.”
