BABRT Will Present Two Spotlight Awards To: Oral Lee Brown And Pam May

On Thursday July 29 th @ 5:00 PM, Jack London Aquatic Center, the Bay Area Business Roundtable will present “Spotlight Awards” to two of its members for outstanding contributions to the quality of life and business development. The awards will be presented during the annual Jazz Business Mixer and Fish Fry.

Pam May is the owner of TechScribe Communications, and developed two white papers, Developing a Sustainable Workforce, and Meeting Basic Needs. The papers outlined the challenges of poor communities and the need to focus resources that will meet the basic needs. The reports set in motion the development of a “green business incubator” to create jobs through entrepreneurship.

Oral Lee Brown has worked tirelessly to provide educational opportunities for Oakland ‘s most underserved students. In 1987 she adopted an entire class of students from Brookfield Elementary School located in the troubled area of East Oakland . This group was labeled as Brookfield ‘s “worst” first grade class. Nearly all of them were poor, and they lived in the violent-plagued flatlands of East Oakland . Of the original group of twenty-three students, nineteen graduated from high school and attended college. The Oral Lee Brown Foundation currently sponsors six (6) groups of children. Not only is she supporting the children financially for their future education, she provides after school, Saturday School , tutoring, mentoring, testing, SAT prep and enhanced online tutoring skills. She authored with Caille Millner “The Promise” How one woman made good on her extraordinary Pact to Send a Classroom of First Graders to College.

Volusia Manufacturers Association Manufacturing Member, Adsil, Inc. Is Paving the Way for a Greener World

Adsil, a global leading for manufacturing of a broad array of protective maintenance coatings, waterproofing sealants, and surface cleaning products, located in Daytona Beach, Florida, and a long-standing Volusia Manufacturers Association Manufacturing Member, is helping make New York City Green.

The magnificent stainless steel artwork pictured below was created by Wexler Galleries of Philadelphia.   It is located at the helicopter port near the historic World Trade Center site in Manhattan.    The protective railing behind it lines the Hudson River pedestrian park from 34th Street to the end of Manhattan.   The lower three rails of the railing is also made of stainless steel.   Both the artwork and lower three protective rails are coated with MicroGuard® AD35, a protective, corrosion-resistant sealant from Adsil, Inc.

Adsil’s protective coating is currently specified by the NYC Park Service for all stainless and decorative metal.  Their proprietary treatment covalently bonds to the surface, at the atom level, and provides long term protection from corrosion from any chemicals, salt-sprays and UV degradation. Adsil’s solution actually enhances the shine of the decorative metal. The best benefit of using Adsil’s protective sealant is that the treated surface is less costly to clean and maintain, resulting in use of less-harsh cleaning supplies, making cleaning with green cleaning chemicals possible and letting park staff clean the artwork and railing in minimal time. The protective railing was completed 3 years ago in 2007 and looks brand new in the picture. The artwork sculpture was completed last month, May 2010, and will be well-preserved with Adsil’s protective coating.
