In 2014, Melissa Persia Oliver received a Joint Legislative Resolution from The Senate and General Assembly (State of NJ) issued By Assemblywoman Oliver, Senator Rice and Assemblyman Giblin, for her significant contributions and commitment to the business community and the community-at-large. Every year at her Business Networking Award Ceremony Persia reaffirms Odyssey’s commitment to the community by honoring business professionals, clergy, politicians and community advocates, who dedicate themselves to giving back. This is one of many examples of Odyssey’s programs and ceremonies highlighting, honoring and giving back to the community.
In 2011, The City of Newark issued a Resolution to Melissa Persia Oliver to honor her for her unwavering commitment towards improving the quality of life of the residents of the City of Newark through Odyssey’s annual events, programs and donations.
