Kevin Stacia, corporate relations manager with the Jones MBA Career Center at the Georgia Tech Scheller College of Business, was recently recognized at the National Black MBA Association (NBMBAA) Conference as a Legacy Leader for his service and leadership.
“To stand next to some of the founders of the national organization and be recognized as a Legacy Leader is truly a high honor for me,” he said.
Stacia joined the NBMBAA after he completed his MBA at Clark Atlanta University. In his 25 years as a member, Stacia was president of the Atlanta Chapter, served on the national Board of Directors, and is a lifetime association member.
“NBMBAA is an exceptional network of African American professionals, and over the years, it has evolved from a group of professional colleagues to an extensive network of friends who are professionals in their fields,” he said.
The NBMBAA is the largest network of Black professionals, with over 11,000 members, 40 local chapters, and 300 corporate, academic, and not-for-profit partners. It was established in 1970 with the purpose of supporting Black individuals entering the corporate sector and aims to create a platform for sharing experiences and insights and facilitating a smoother journey into the business world.
As part of the award, Stacia received a plaque with the inscription, “Through courage, determination, and empowerment, you have shattered barriers, broken down walls, and opened doors of opportunity that were once deemed unreachable. A beacon that guides us towards a future where possibilities are limitless.”
