On Sunday, August 5, 2018, the Milwaukee Community Journal celebrated its 42nd Anniversary at the Italian Conference Center, 631 E. Chicago St. As part of their 42nd year, Milwaukee Community Journal publisher Patricia O’Flynn Pattillo dedicated this year as the ‘Year of the Child.’ Along with a year-long series of articles published in their newspaper, Community Journal decided to honor those here in Milwaukee that are working to improve education, health, and opportunities for the youth of our community.

Among those honored (top photo) were Rev. Joy Gallum; Olivia El-Amin; Danae Davis; Tonnie Boston; Dalvery Blackwell; Dr. Najwa Beit Shawish, MD; and Toshiba Adams; along with a host of others.

The Community Journal also gave out nineteen scholarships to local students in both undergrad and graduate courses: (lower photo) Cameron LeFlore; Anna Dannecker, Essence Owens; Malik Johnson; Mackenzie Robertson; Alexandria Brown; Patrick Iyasele; Olivia Osunkwu; Nathaniel Washington; Jaazmin Chainey; Elise Asdhley; Morgan Harlan; Caroline Walker; Jonathan Morris; Chiara Sanders; Alethia Tilford; Brian Mays; Kayla Johnson; and Domonique Weathers.

Congratulations to The Milwaukee Community Journal on 42 Wonderful Years!
