At the Long Island University campus, Founder Robert Byer received two citations of Black-American Achievement in the Fort Greene community.
The ceremony, sponsored by the Fort Greene Association, presented the awards during their 2012 Juneteenth Celebration. “Coach Bob”, along with 27 other longtime community dignitaries, were individually celebrated each day during February 2012’s Black History Month. February 7, 2012 was dedicated to him.
