As apart of our follow up to the progress the Daughters of Zion CNPP grantee is making within Memphis and Shelby County we discovered Dr. Gerald Kiner, PhD Daughters of Zion’s Executive Director created an Entrepreneur of the Week award named after the 27th Administrator of the SBA Isabella Casillas Guzman and Terry Sutherland Director, Office of Entrepreneurship Education (OEE) Office of Entrepreneurial Development (OED)
U.S. Small Business Administration. When asked why the award was named after those two individuals, Dr. Kiner explained “ Giving honor to whom honor is due is one of Daughters of Zion’s guiding principles and without the vision of Isabella Guzman and the person responsible for executing that vision – Terry Sutherland, the resources we have to help the hundreds of businesses we have assisted thus far wouldn’t be available. Our honorees and our small business clients aided by this grant need to know who those two individuals are and the
difference they made in making our free services possible. Our honorees will reflect the Guzman – Sutherland gifts of vision and execution.”

Dr. Kiner notes Mr. Treveles D. Simmons was chosen as the first Guzman- Sutherland Entrepreneur of the Week because “ In less than a week of involvement, he immediately caught the program’s vision and has made an instant impact in spreading that vision to other entrepreneurs. His execution in helping others and his remarkable desire to see others blessed, not just his own business, deserves recognition.”
