    David R. McGhee was in Los Angeles during the BET Awards last weekend, but gazing at celebrities wasn't high on his priority list.
    The Flint native was honored that weekend in the 2012 BE NEXT Awards, an event by a collective of entertainers, industry executives and entrepreneurs. He joined Terrence J, host of BET's flagship show "106 & Park" and actor of the film "Think Like A Man;" Vic Hill, president of "100 Young Black Men;" and Devon Franklin, Vice President of Production at Sony/Columbia Pictures.
    The event was sponsored by Black Enterprise magazine, Crown Royal Black, and 100 Urban Entrepreneurs.
    ....The organization honored McGhee for his community service, for his work as Program Director for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Flint, public speaking, and strategic planning with Open Society Institute.
    ..."The glitz and glamour was cool, but I understood the overarching purpose of improving life for young black males," said McGhee, 29. "I didn't want to lose focus of why I was there in the first place."
