ALLENTOWN, Pa. - A red carpet awards celebration recognizes trailblazers and leaders in the community for Black History Month.

The "Light the Way" celebration presented awards to distinguished residents of Allentown.

WFMZ's very own Chandi Lowry was honored Saturday night at the event at Allentown City Hall.

Along with several other of her achievements, Chandi is the first female African American anchor at WFMZ.

Proclamations prepared by City Council also honored those in the medical field, banking, education and other categories.

Organizers say although the focus is Black History Month, all ethnicities are welcome to join in this celebration of diversity.

"What this evening does is brings all of the community together, every color, culture, creed and background to highlight Black History Month and that allows us to not only celebrate the greater purpose of Black History Month, but really highlight who here in the Lehigh Valley is living history," said Kari Holmes.

69 News was also on the red carpet. WFMZ's Jaciel Cordoba served as the evening's Red Carpet Host.
