Spirit of Excellence Awards hosts annual Black Tie Gala

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

The Spirit of Excellence Business Awards rolled out the red carpet tonight for its 10th annual "Black Tie " gala.

The group presented fourteen awards. Some honored businesses, others recognized individuals. But all the awards were given for accomplishments and achievements made in our community.

"The unstoppable woman is a four time cancer survivor who returned to school in her 50's and graduated cum laude and she is now with a master's degree teaching at Virginia Tech and her name is Beverly Davis," said Estelle Mannion.

"The male extraordinaire is Colonel McArthur Holmes; he has served with the Chatham County Sheriff's Department for the past 33 years. And, for that award, you have to be a man of integrity, a man that's a role model for other men, a man that's got good character in the community and that he exemplifies."  

Our very own Dawn Baker was the emcee for tonight's event.
