Deputy Director Mario Goderich of the Miami-Dade Consumer Services Department presents the Chauffeur of the Quarter Award to Ikram Khan on March 4, 2010 for demonstrating exceptional customer service in the return of a passenger’s purse.
The Miami-Dade Consumer Services Department awarded the Chauffeur of the Quarter prize to taxicab driver Ikram Khan on March 4, 2010, for doing more than his due diligence to return a purse to its rightful owner.

Khan called the passenger’s bank, gym and dentist’s office searching for the woman’s contact information. He was finally successful when he asked library officials to contact the passenger using the information they had for her on file. Khan then drove all the way to the woman’s home and personally delivered the purse – at no extra charge.

Everett Oseola will present the Culture and History of the Seminoles at Broward County Library’s African American Research Library and Cultural Center located at 2650 NW Sistrunk Blvd., Fort Lauderdale on Saturday, March 27th at 2 p.m. He will share some of his stories of tradition and customs and what it feels like ”to be Seminole.” His presentation is part of the closing program for the Smithsonian Exhibition, IndiVisible: African-Native Lives in the Americas, a 20-panel traveling exhibit that focuses on the seldom-viewed history and complex lives of people of dual African-American and native ancestry that has been on display at the library since January 28. Through the themes of policy, community, creative resistance and life ways, the exhibition tells stories of cultural integration and diffusion as well as the struggle to define and preserve identity.
