||Hillsborough, NC — PHE, Inc. is pleased to announce that Ralph Bradley Long has been chosen as a “Man of the Year” by Spectacular Magazine.
Long’s award was for community service as “Program Facilitator, Rites of Passage Program at Durham Business & Professional Chain (Durham).” Rites of Passage is a mentoring program for African-American boys ages 13-17.
Spectacular Magazine, in conjunction with Triangle Cultural Awareness Foundation, recognized and honored the achievements of African American men with the Spectacular Magazine Man of the Year Awards.
Twenty-four African American men in eight categories were selected by the NC Juneteenth Celebration Planning Committee as Semi-Finalists for Spectacular Magazine Man of the Year Awards. Nine of those received the title at the Spectacular Magazine Man of the Year Awards Banquet on Friday night June 18th. The black-tie Banquet was the kick-off event of the 6th Annual NC Juneteenth Celebration & Unity March.
Mr. Long has been with PHE, Inc., the parent company of Adam & Eve, 16 years. He currently holds the position of Operations Coordinator.
His supervisor, Duncan Whitehead, says, “Long is a dedicated employee with a purpose – in addition to his regular schedule, he’s here almost every week-end doing shipping runs and requesting our period-end processing. In his spare time, he’s touched hundreds of lives through the Rites of Passage program, mentoring and helping “at risk” boys become men. He’s a good worker, friend and citizen.”
