The Rev. Dr. Sylvester Washington added another honor to his long list of achievements when Los Angeles placed his name to the list of streets among the city.
Councilman Bernard Parks and former Councilwoman Jan Perry announced the designation of ‘Sylvester Washington Court’ at Pleasant Hill Baptist Church on September 8.
Members and friends applauded the recognition of Dr. Washington, who has devoted more than 43 years to improving his community. During his tenure as pastor of Pleasant Hill, Mayors Tom Bradley and Antonio Villaraigosa, U.S. Congresswomen Maxine Walters, Diane Watson and Karen Bass, Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas and others have saluted his contributions.
Also, Dr. Washington is the National Executive Director of The Evangelism Movement, Inc., and the founder of several non-profit outreach programs.
