The Metropolitan Minority Business Association has chosen Charles A. Dukes Jr., to be the first recipient of its "Minority Business Salute Award."

Dukes, a prominent area businessman and lawyer, has been chairman of the board of John Hanson Savings and Loan Inc. for the past 15 years and its chief executive officer since 1981. He also is a partner in the firm of Dukes, Clements, Callahan and Greenwald in Prince George's County.

Dukes received the award because of his efforts to develop minority businesses during his 1983-'84 term as president of the Prince George's Chamber of Commerce, said Wilbert Wilson, an MMBA spokesman. Dukes left his post with the chamber several months ago, but continues to work with MMBA members. He also counsels minority business leaders in his spare time.

"For years, Mr. Dukes has been a friend to many minority businesses in the community and he has exemplified the linkage between the small business and the larger sector. Dukes is one of a few of the majority to stand out and support the idea that minority businesses should be recognized," said Wilson.

Dukes will receive the award at a reception in his honor tomorrow. TRADE
