Rolling out and parent company Steed Media Group were thrilled to honor several phenomenal women at the 2015 Top 25 Women of Atlanta soiree at the Twelve Atlantic Station Hotel on Nov. 19.

From radio personalities to college professors and restaurateurs, the accomplished ladies recognized for their influence in Atlanta have risen to the top ranks of their respective fields and have become masters of their professions.

The ladies arrived in style and sat among supporters at the stunning venue for an evening of music, food and speeches. The sounds of jazz played in the background as guests were served drinks and conversed. Actress Demetria McKinney of “Tyler Perry’s House of Payne” fame, treated the audience to her cover of Mariah Carey’s uplifting song, “Hero.”

Munson Steed, the CEO of Steed Media Group, offered words of appreciation for all that the honorees have done to improve and encourage their communities. It was then time for the ladies to receive their plaques and take pictures with Steed as Steed Media’s director of business operations Melinda Johnson announced their accomplishments to the audience.
