Councilman Harris-Dawson Keynotes PVJOBS Annual Recognition Luncheon
| Marqueece Harris-Dawson,
Member of the Los Angeles City Council from the 8th district
Los Angeles City Council 8th District Councilman Marqueece Harris-Dawson gave the keynote speech at the PVJOBS recognition luncheon “Hopes Realized ~ Dreams Fulfilled” on September 24 in the Center at Cathedral Plaza.
“When we got the call, I thought about how many people we’ve referred to PVJOBS over the years,” Harris-Dawson said. “I owe you.”
Although Harris-Dawson had only been in his city office for two months, the Councilman became well acquainted with PVJOBS through Community Coalition. He began working at that organization in 1995, before leaving his post as President and CEO earlier this year.
During his speech, Harris-Dawson praised luncheon honorees, which included Metro as Visionary of the Year; Largo Concrete as Contractor of the Year; and three PVJOBS program participants who have overcome significant obstacles to learn successful careers. Videos of honorees are posted below.
