Barb James Wins Encore Award
Barb James, President of Azalea Acres/Azalea Lakes Civic League, won an award from the Hampton Roads Encore! Awards. Barb is a relatively new civic league president. She wanted her neighborhood to have a voice in city affairs so she stepped out and gave her civic league a needed re-start. She also attended many of our NBN Academy sessions and thanked Nikki Southall, her Neighborhood Development Specialist, for help.
