The Montgomery Advertiser:

Afiya Madzimoyo, formerly Carolyn Caver, is being recognized by Compro-Tax for her work in entrepreneurship training and professional development in contributing to the mobile tax office trend. She’ll be honored Sept. 15 at the Renaissance Montgomery Hotel & Spa at the Convention Center.

“Her story is a textbook for those who want to know how to succeed in business by rendering distinguished service to our community,” said Sophia Bracy-Harris of the Federation of Child Care Centers of Alabama.

Mayfield will be the keynote speaker at the Sept. 15 event, where Madzimoyo will receive the “Culture of Business Award.” The company said the event will try to offer hope to young adults interested in business by celebrating Madzimoyo’s successes in turning people like them into successful entrepreneurs and managers.
