BIRMINGHAM — Alabama State Representative Rolanda Hollis honored 12 women at her annual Beautiful Women in Hats Brunch. One of the women honored was Center Point City Councilor D.M. Collins., along with two other women involved in the Center Point community.
“It was an honor to be recognized for my service,” said Collins. “My purpose as City Council President is to serve the people of Center Point. To be honored by State Rep. Rolanda Hollis encourages me to continue my pursuit and works for the people. Thank you, Representative Hollis!”
During her first term on the council, Collins has been involved in community needs including tornado relief, economic development, and she has been receptive and reactive with citizens’ concerns, including working with the sheriff’s office in order to get more law enforcement visibility in certain areas of the city.
Center Point First Lady Sabrina Scott and Director of Community Care Development Network Tamika Hollis were also among the women honored.
Each woman also received an award from the Alabama House of Representatives and the US House of Representatives. Latosha Brown, co-founder of Black Voter Matter was the Keynote Speaker.
