KCP’s Carey honored as 2014 Black Achiever

Anthony Carey is not just focused on developing the next generation of Test Systems for our nation’s military; he’s also focused on developing the next generation of young leaders.

A Technical Manager for the Kansas City Plant, Anthony was honored Jan. 16 at the annual Black Achievers Society of Kansas City event for his leadership both in the workplace and in the community. 

The Kansas City Black Achiever’s Society is comprised of nearly 500 African-American businessmen and women who were nominated by their employers over the past 39 years as exemplary leaders in their corporate roles as well as their commitment to the social, economic and educational development of area youth.

In addition to teaching strategic thinking to interns at INROADS (a national nonprofit dedicated to preparing youth for corporate and community leadership), Anthony also mentors high schoolers through PREP KC (a Kansas City-based organization), and coaches soccer, basketball and softball youth teams. As an Engineering Advisory Board Member for Shawnee Mission South high school, he helped determine engineering based academic curriculum for students that support FIRST Robotics and other national events. He also participates in various local community charities including the local Knights of Columbus chapter.
