'Germany Kent Day' Hometown Celebrity Germany Kent honored with her own day

Germany Kent was given one of the highest honors bestowed upon a civilian recently when she was awarded her own day. The Honorable Mayor Errick D. Simmons presented a proclamation on behalf of the City proclaiming June 20, 2017, as “Germany Kent Day” in Greenville.

The ladies of Alpha Kappa Alpha Eta Theta Omega Chapter and the Les Modernettes Social Club co-hosted a homecoming celebration event for the multi-talented Mississippi native.

The beloved hometown influential personality, who is an actress, producer, hope guru, entertainment journalist, social activist and philanthropist, was honored and recognized by several organizations for her notable professional achievements and humanitarian work at a community reception.

The well-attended event, which was held at the William Alexander Percy Memorial Library in Greenville, was a public acknowledgement of the many successes Kent has had in her distinguished career.

The acclaimed author was welcomed home by her closest friends, family, and dignitaries. Kent, known locally as Evelyn LaShawn Palmer, was showered with gifts and awards.

During the celebration, Kent also received a “Lifetime Community Service Award” from the Eta Theta Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, which was presented by the Chapter’s president Mary Hardy. In addition, Kent received a “Legacy Award” from the prestigious Les Modernettes Social Club, presented by Betty Coleman. Kent’s late grandmother, Evelyn R. Palmer, was one of the original founders of the organization. Les Modernettes president Dr. Elmertha Burton was in attendance, as well as other elected city officials and prominent community leaders.

A tearful Kent thanked the audience for their love and support over the years acknowledging that some of the attendees had known her since birth. “Many of you have been there for me for as long as I can remember. Some of you have known me since I was in the womb,” Kent said.

“Don’t think I take any of this for granted, because I do not,” added Kent.
