The NAACP of Erie will have some fresh faces added to their slate of officers.
Brian Arrington will be the organization’s new Vice President and Cheryl Horton-Jong is now the new Assistant Secretary. Meanwhile, Gary Horton was re-elected as President, Veronica Rexford was re-elected as Secretary and George Morgan III will remain as Treasurer.
The installation ceremony for these officers was held during a Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration at St. James A-M-E Church. According to Horton, his main focus this year was unity, education and increasing the branch’s membership.
