Isaac “ Ike” Howard  is the recipient of the 2016 Jacquelyne B. Barber Excellence in Community Leadership Award presented to him by the African American Caucus of Forsyth County Democratic Party Jacquelyne Barber Branch, on Sunday July 24, at their annual cookout.

The award is named for co-founding African American Caucus FCDP, member and community advocate and activist Jacquelyne B. Barber, and spotlights positive, productive, and evidence-based community leadership.

Howard is a fixture in Winston-Salem, living here and educated in the local public schools, and is an active member of his local assembly. He is known in the community for his indomitable spirit, tenacious debate, and common sense approach toward issues in the community. He believes all politics is local and that the fight is always at the grassroots level.

Whether trying to bring positive economic growth, challenging and holding elected officials accountable, or demanding equity in education, Howard is always on the front lines to face an issue head on.

Serving on various community committees, he is also president of the Forsyth County NAACP and is a force behind the Community School Bond Coalition Committee.

Howard was presented his well-deserved award in the presence of family, friends and community leaders.

As an award recipient, he joins previous Community Leader recipients Harold Lee Hairston, Hollywood Cuts Barber Shop, Larry Womble, Bobby Wilson, and S.W. Patterson.
