View this content on HuffPost BlackVoices's website

One of the largest philanthropic foundations in the U.S. has named a black woman President and CEO.

La June Montgomery Tabron will take the wheel of this iconic 83-year-old organization.  Come 2014, Tabron will be the first African-American to take this role ever!

She is no stranger to The Kellogg Foundation.  In fact, the 51-year-old Detroit native started her career there when she was just 24, taking on the role of Financial Controller.  Tabron climbed her way up the philanthropic ladder over the past 26 years to her current role of Executive Vice President of Operations and Treasurer.

With a degree in business administration from the University of Michigan and a Master's degree in business administration from the Kellogg Graduate School of Management at Northwestern University, Tabron knows first hand about challenges in the world, because she had to overcome her own obstacles in life.

"Growing up in a family of ten children in inner-city Detroit, I know first-hand the day-to-day challenges faced by the families we seek to help," she explained in the press release. "In so many ways, my own journey illustrates the power and impact of what is possible with the right conditions.”

Congratulations, my sista gurl......My your hard work and perseverance continue to pay off in life!
