Nationally recognized legal business strategist and public relations expert representing the nation’s top attorneys, Winston-Salem, North Carolina native, Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc., member, 2022 Honorary Doctorate Degree recipient from Trinity International University of Ambassadors, among many other countless accolades – Dr. Tanya Wiley-Brown was a 2022 recipient of the Presidential Lifetime Achievement Award during Trinity International University of Ambassadors’ Fall Commencement Ceremony in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Dec. 3. 

The Presidential Lifetime Achievement Award is the highest honor in the country issued by the President and government of the United States, recognizing recipients for their commitment to cultivating lasting change. 

“In 1988, I pledged Zeta Phi Beta Sorority. Through my affiliation with this organization of finer women, the foundation that my parents laid when I was very young was further validated as I learned more about service, charity, scholarship and sisterhood. I decided to devote my life to making a difference so that God would bless me to be a blessing unto others, and this is the foundation of all that I do,” said Dr.s Wiley-Brown. 

Dr. Wiley-Brown has dished out thousands of hours of volunteerism over the course of her 25-year career dedicated to serving others, but her commitment to service started when she was a small child. 

“My grandparents would take me with them to visit the sick and shut-in. I would help to prepare food and one of my favorite past-times was to sing and read to those we visited.” 

Dr. Wiley-Brown’s membership with various organizations from Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc., Union Baptist Church of Winston-Salem, along with laying the foundation for the development of programs like the Reginald F. Lewis Educational Equity Initiative that has been adopted by the University of Louisiana System alongside renowned attorney James Carter of New Orleans, Louisiana, are only a few examples of her commitment to service. These various endeavors have allowed Dr. Wiley-Brown to feed the hungry, provide clothing and other resources to those in need, in addition to offering educational resources to youth in primary and secondary education. 

“While there are many talented leaders, it is rare to find a leader such as Tanya with such a broad range of business experience, complemented by technical talents and an engaging personality. Moreover, she is of the highest character and she is truly a leader among leaders. I am particularly impressed by her burning desire to make a difference in the area of education,” said Jonathan Martin, a friend and colleague of Dr. Wiley-Brown. 

Dr. Wiley-Brown owns and manages WCP Consulting and Communications, LLC, WB & Associates, LLC, WCP Communications, WCP Speaker’s Bureau and WB Technology Co., LLC. Dr. Wiley-Brown’s work reaches beyond the continental borders of the United States, as she has participated in global programs that focus on education initiatives, including those associated with Beza International in Addis Abada, Ethiopia. 

Dr. Wiley-Brown is beyond honored to have been selected to receive one of the nation’s highest honors highlighting volunteerism and commitment to service. 

“It is a privilege to be honored for something that I love to do. I am a firm believer that God did not place us on this earth to simply occupy space; instead, we must do whatever is necessary to create the next generation of leaders which includes giving just a little of what we’ve been blessed with back to those who are less fortunate, and perhaps if somewhere along the way someone recognizes that we are making a difference, it is even sweeter; so I am eternally grateful and I do not take this moment in time for granted.”
