The first person selected to receive Antioch Baptist Church’s
distinguished Rufus A. Strother, Jr. Community Service award is
Brother Melvin Burruss of Peekskill, NY. Bro. Burruss, an attorney and
business professional, is the Chairman of the African American Men of
Westchester, an all-volunteer non-profit organization founded in 1987.

individual, who like Pastor Strother, is making significant
contributions to their community through their actions, talents,
