McDonald’s taps Douglass senior as Black History Maker of Today

Azaria Howard McDonald’s has named Frederick Douglass High School senior Azaria Howard as a 2021 Black History Maker of Today, a leadership honor that includes a $1,000 scholarship. Azaria expressed excitement at her selection and appreciation for the award, saying, “I plan to go to college and major in business administration and in the future open my own businesses.” Monica Jones, the college and career readiness coach at Douglass, said Azaria was the unanimous choice of the school’s nominating committee. “Azaria is truly a standout student. Not only is she great academically, but she goes above and beyond outside of the classroom,” Jones said. “She truly represents the best of Douglass.”
