Kalan Haywood, II for his pioneering contribution to public service; Deacon Emeritus Thomas R. Morgan for his pioneering contribution to church ministry; the late Rev. Alonzo Clemons for his pioneering contribution to church music ministry; and Minister Anthony McCahee also for his pioneering contribution to church music ministry.
