In addition to professional accomplishments, honorees maintain significant involvement and participation in community and civic activities. Previously with AT&T for many years and then serving in a variety of non-profit leadership roles, Vikki is currently the President and CEO of the National Black Arts Festival and joined ARCS last year.
