L.A. Focus Publisher Lisa Collins was recently celebrated by the city of Inglewood as a “Trailblazer” and is one of those featured in a rotating ad on the KIA Forum marquee throughout the month of March.
Collins, whose newspaper is headquartered in Inglewood, is one of eight women selected as part of the city’s nod to Women’s History Month. Also being celebrated are AIDS Healthcare Foundation Vice President Anita Castille, Kia Forum General Manager Becky Colwell, L.A. Chargers’ Community Affairs VP Heather Birdsall, L.A. County Superintendent of Schools Dr. Debra Duardo, Inglewood School District Vice President Carliss McGee, One For All CEO Mari Rodriquez and Sabrina Barnes who serves as Director of Parks, Recreation and Library Services for the City of Inglewood.
“Each year, the Inglewood Unified School District celebrates Women’s History Month by uplifting and spotlighting the extraordinary achievements of Women in Inglewood,” said Dr. James Morris, who serves as Inglewood County Administrator. “They are all well-deserved and have demonstrated excellence in what they do for our community.”
“I was both surprised and pleased to have been selected and to be spotlighted in a group of women who have all achieved so much,” said Collins. “Given that for so many of us, the hard work goes unrecognized, it feels good to know that your efforts are appreciated, and that the L.A. Focus is respected.”
