Aisha and 3 others were honored at The Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Association of Asheville and Buncombe County’s Jan 20th Candlelight Service.

The Candlelight Service is an annual event which “honors area citizens and organizations that have dedicated themselves to the cause of social justice.”

Over a period of more than 30 years, educators, police officers, firemen, community activists, health professionals, and a variety of nonprofit organizations have been honored with awards for community service and humanitarian activities. The 2020 Honorees were social media influencer Aisha Adams; educator of former offenders Philip Cooper; community volunteer Lewis Isaac (1948 – 2019); and advocate for LGBTQ youth Adrian Parra.
