Spotlight – Debra Bronston

Debra Bronston

If service to a mission or cause is a measure of success, the Urban Financial Services Coalition’s new president Debra Bronston may require a new measurement scale.  Her modesty sometimes inhibits her from sharing her many accomplishments that include receiving the Martin Luther King Drum Major for Service Award issued by President Barack Obama, being only the second person in her 5 maternal family generations since slavery to finish college and becoming the first African American to hold an official position at the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City where she worked for 31 years.

 

As others like her, Ms. Bronston has faced obstacles in her career pursuits and efforts to empower communities.
