With Black History Month taking place in February, Agape Church of Los Angeles has planned two events to celebrate the achievements of notable African Americans in the L.A. area.

Educators Appreciation Sunday is set for February 10, at 11 a.m., in the Agape sanctuary located at the Consolidated Plaza, 3725 Don Felipe Drive in Los Angeles.   The special guests will be Dr. George J. McKenna, LAUSD board member; and Dr. Ayanna Davis, principal of the Wanda Miles and the 75th Street Early Education Centers.

“The role of Black educators in the African American experience has directly contributed to the success of this country,” said Bishop Craig A. Worsham, senior pastor. “Dr. McKenna and Dr. Davis exemplify the character and dedication of those who are committed to training our people to excel.”

Agape Church will host Law Enforcement Sunday on Feb. 17, at 11 a.m. The honorees are CHP Southern Division Chief Mark Garrett, LAPD Deputy Chief Regina Scott, USC Public Safety Chief John Thomas, Fontana School District Chief Mark Sissac and LAPD Officer Deon Joseph. KTTV news anchor Christine Devine will be recognized as well.

“This is an opportunity to salute some of the community leaders in public safety, who consistently maintain the highest standards, even in the most difficult circumstances, ” said Worsham.

“We want to thank Leon Gamble, CEO of the Gamble Group, and LAPD Sergeant II Lu Q. Watkins, for partnering with us to honor these stars in law enforcement and salute Ms. Devine, who broadcasts stories about their achievements.”

Inviting the public to attend the events, Worsham added that a reception will follow both worship services.
