BMe Community Names 10 Top Leaders in Miami 

By, Ascellia Arenas 


Thursday, June 30th, I was a special guest of, author and President of Affirming Youth, Jonathan Spikes, at the Better Together Celebration Miami, at The historic Lyric Theater, in Miami Florida. Spikes was honored as a community leader that significantly impacts the progress and development of youth and community at large in South Florida. 

All 10 of the men honored are pillars of the South Florida community and abroad. They can be found providing community service, working with youth, providing expertise in all areas of education, law, medicine, business, physical fitness, spirituality, and much more. The honorees will receive $10,000 each for their community programs after being named Miami’s first BMe Leaders. The event was energetic, electric, and filled with hope and expectancy of great things to come.

Benjamin Evans III, Managing Director of the BMe Community, was an engaging host who kept the large audience of families, supporters, and honorees cheering in the hallowed halls of the historic Lyric Theater . Evans did not skip a beat, each honoree danced on stage to celebrate success. The BMe Better Together Awards also honored Alberto Ibargüen, Javier Alberto Soto, Felecia Hatcher, Dr. Pandwe Gibson, David Lawrence Jr. The event was energetic, electric, and alive. We are looking forward to more from all of the honorees and BMe Community. 

Founder and CEO of BMe Community, Trabian Shorters, was inspired by the progressive development of black men and developed an extensive network of all races and genders that is committed to building better communities across the U.S.
