Since the start of the pandemic,  the AFRO has made it a priority to acknowledge the hard work and dedication of its team members through the AFRO Team Member of the Year honor. For the year 2021, AFRO News Editor Jessica Dortch was selected by her peers as deserving of the honor. “I am speechless,” Dortch responded when the announcement was made live on Facebook during the AFRO’s Christmas Celebration. 

“This year was hard for me, like so many other people, and I am just amazed and thankful for this recognition from my coworkers. I, personally, work with almost each member of our team directly and we are all so close knit. We really do support each other and operate like a family. The work I do here at the AFRO is taxing at times, but it has been rewarding a rewarding experience to serve my community.”
