As someone who is involved in strategizing for the future, I have two solid beliefs:

- Education is is ongoing and essential to self improvement.

- Past experience is invaluable in the decision making process.

Bronx African Advisory Council Soccer Tournament Awards Ceremony

Bronx African Advisory Council Soccer Tournament Awards Ceremony

The Bronx African Advisory Council, set up to advise Bronx Borough President Reuben Diaz, Jr. holds an annual soccer tournament for African diaspora residents of the borough. This year’s tournament held in the spring featured a woman’s component for the first time leading to a series of exhibition games for the women. The tournament drew large crowds of supporters for all the nations involved and proved successful once again.


In October, the Bronx AAC held its annual awards night in the Bronx County Courthouse to honor and praise the notable individuals and teams that participated. The event was held in the Veteran’s Memorial Hall, a larger yet warm meeting space inside the building.


The evening’s festivities began with a prayer by Dr. Abdoulaye Balde This was followed with speeches by local political leaders including the Borough President, Mr. Diaz, the City Council member for the area, the Honorable Vanessa Gibson and by the leadership of the AAC led by Charles Cooper, Jr.


Certificates were presented and honors bestowed on the team that put together the event as well as recognizing individuals from the Bronx AAC that were available at all times to ensure that success was the goal in presenting this year’s completion.


The next part of the ceremony included honoring the game officials, the outstanding players and the two top teams – Burkina Faso, the runner up and Guinea, the tournament winner.


The evening ended with every one enjoying a meal of traditional African food.
 
As the crowd made its way out, their minds were definitely look towards the 2015 tournament.
