ONE YEAR OF BUILDING STRONGER CONNECTIONS WITH THE AFRICAN AMERICAN COMMUNITY
The Pensacola Network Celebrates One Year
The Pensacola Network celebrates its first year anniversary on Friday, July 25,
2014, as the monthly networking event connecting people and strengthening relationships in the African American community. It highlights 12 months of ideas and actions around economic, community and cultural growth and development with business, government and community leaders. The event begins at 5pm in historic Belmont DeVilliers, 321 N De Villiers St. Pensacola, FL 32501 is free and open to the public with registration at www.pcolanetwork.com.
Started in July 2013 by businessman and engineer Lloyd Reshard, the networking has
averaged 110 professional and community members who look forward to discussing ideas and taking action to grow their businesses, engage government and make communities stronger. It has been a success because people are expecting great information and ideas, said Reshard, and that's what they're getting. Each month a special guest joins co-host Robin Reshard for a conversation for the web series, The Pensacola Network Show, to discuss their vision, opportunities and challenges of their sector. This months guest is Malcolm Thomas, superintendent of the Escambia County School District.
Past guests include Gulf Power Company president Stan Connally, Escambia County Commissioner Lumon May, Escambia RESTORE Committee Chairperson Bentina Terry, McDonalds franchise owner Pete Nowak, Sheriff David Morgan, Mayor Ashton Hayward, Baptist Hospital internist Dr. Cheryl Jeffries, UWF president Dr. Judy Bense, Studer Institute president Randy Hammer, PNJ publisher Terry Horne, and Gulf Coast Gulf Coast African American Chamber of Commerce executive director Nicole Dixon.
Lloyd Reshard understands the power of networking and the simple concept of showing
up. This Friday is the place to be to connect with people who are an amazing asset to the
positive growth and development of our neighborhoods, city, county and state, Reshard stated. "You'll want to be there so that they can connect with you."

Kohn has been featured on hundreds of TV and radio programs, including the "Today" show and two appearances on "Oprah"; he has been profiled in the Washington Post and the Los Angeles Times, while his work has been described and debated in many other leading publications.
Kohn lectures widely at universities and to school faculties, parent groups, and corporations. In addition to speaking at staff development seminars and keynoting national education conferences on a regular basis, he conducts workshops for teachers and administrators on various topics.
Admission is FREE. Please RSVP to Creative Learning Academy at 850-432-1768. To learn more about Alfie Kohn, go to www.alfiekohn.com.
