In Honor of Leon Staples, a Beloved NBMBAA® Atlanta Member and Leader

In Honor of Leon Staples, a Beloved NBMBAA<sup>®</sup> Atlanta Member and Leader

On behalf of the National Black MBA Association® and the Atlanta Chapter (NBMBAA® Atlanta), we regretfully announce the transition of Leon Staples, a beloved member of our community.

Leon served NBMBAA® Atlanta in various roles and committees including Membership, Special Events and recently as the moderator for the chapter’s August 2019 Forum entitled, “Accelerate Your Career.”

In addition to his active involvement with NBMBAA® Atlanta, Leon served the community in many impactful ways including the role of President & CEO of The National Association of African Americans in Human Resources, Atlanta Chapter (NAAAHR Atlanta) since 2018. Since 2014, Leon led business as the Sr. Human Resources Specialist at Grady Health System.

While recognizing his untimely transition, we take a moment to share our extreme gratitude for the significant impact Leon drove for NBMBAA® Atlanta due to his selflessness in sharing his time and talent whenever called upon the abundance of smiles and warm welcome he delivered during frequent interactions with members.

Leon’s legacy will continue to live through many contributions he accomplished in the Atlanta area’s Corporate, Human Resources and African American Communities. Please keep his family, friends and loved ones in your thoughts and prayers during this time of bereavement.
