Georgia State Conference NAACP President Edward DuBose to be Honored as Man of the Year by The Informer

by Amanda Smith

Georgia State Conference NAACP President Edward DuBose has been selected to receive the Man of the Year Award by The Informer and will be honored at The Informer's Annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Awards Ceremony. The event will be held on January 18, 2014 at 12 noon at New Pilgrim Missionary Baptist Church, located at 4388 Robinson Road in Macon, Georgia.

DuBose holds an Associate's Degree in General Education, Associate and Baccalaureate degrees in Business Administration and a Masters Degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. In addition he is a Licensed Professional Counselor, National Certified Counselor, Certified Anger Management Specialist, member of the National Board of Certified Counselors, and a member of the Licensed Professional Counselors Association of Georgia. DuBose is also registered as a Neutral with the Georgia Office of Dispute resolution and has received certificates in Civil as well as Family and Domestic Relations Mediation.

"I am humbled by my selection as Man of the Year by The Informer," said DuBose. "I do what I do not because of the awards or recognition; I do it because I know that we are called to be our brother's and sister's keeper," he continued. "I am humbled that someone along this path of justice would pause and recognize what I do".

DuBose served seven years as President of the Columbus Georgia Branch NAACP (1997 - 2005), and five years as 2nd Vice President of the Georgia State Conference NAACP (2000 - 2005). In addition, he served two years as Georgia State NAACP Veterans Affairs Chairman (1999 - 2001) and three years as District Coordinator (1999 - 2002) for District 21 of the Georgia State Conference NAACP which encompasses 9 counties.

DuBose made history in Columbus in 2005, by becoming the only resident and NAACP member from Columbus, Georgia to be elected to the office of State President of the Georgia State Conference NAACP. He was reelected to a fourth term as president on October 8, 2011. He made history again on February 21, 2009, during the meeting of the NAACP National Board of Directors when he became the first Georgia State Conference NAACP President in its 69-year history to be elected to the NAACP National Board of Directors. He was reelected to the National Board of Directors for a second term on February 18, 2012.

As owner of Everlasting Peace Counseling and Consulting services, DuBose and his staff provide in-home counseling to at-risk youth and families throughout the state of Georgia and Alabama including such diverse services as Comprehensive Child and Family assessments for children who have been removed from the home to determine best placement, anger management groups, and groups on preventing teen pregnancy.

Understanding that there is no greater calling than the Call of God and no greater privilege than that of preaching God’s Holy Word, DuBose obeyed the call of God and was Ordained as a Minister on March 18, 2012, at Peaceful Holiness Church where he has been a member since July 1992.

The Informer is honored to recognize Edward DuBose as Man of the Year for 2013.
