(BALTIMORE – June 10, 2019) – For 20 years, Shina Parker and Monzella Saunders-Owings, Esq. have been toiling in the vineyard at Integrity Title & Escrow, LLC. While it has not been easy for these two African American women to secure work in a field dominated by white males, they have managed to win against all odds.
Yet, they are not victims; not by far. In fact, it is the challenges that have made them stronger, more resolved, and more determined to succeed.
Hence, it is our distinct pleasure to recognize these business titans on June 25, 2019 from 6 to 7:30 pm at “25 Years a Journalist.” Tickets are available at https://25yearsajournalist.eventbrite.com. This event celebrates the 25 year career of journalist Doni Glover and will be emceed by Senior Journalist Charles Robinson. Special thanks to Dr. Patricia Newton for hosting this momentous event.
