Telisha Madison has overcome poverty and homelessness after growing up in a number of foster homes while her mother was in prison.

Madison went on to build a successful career with Center City Housing in Duluth and Friday's date will continue to honor her hard work and determination while inspiring those in similar situations.

"I, Emily Larson, Mayor of the City of Duluth, officially proclaim May 18th, 2018, as Telisha Madison's Minnesota Job Honor Award Day in the City of Duluth," said Larson during the ceremony.

The Minnesota Job Honor Awards aim at recognizing Minnesotans who have overcome the barriers in achieving successful employment after living through dire situations.
