Coricka White Rewrites 99 Year History As First Black Woman To Helm Baltimore’s Domino Sugar

Coricka White makes history as First Black Woman To Helm Baltimore’s Domino Sugar

For the first time in almost a century, The Domino Sugar Factory, the second-largest sugar factory in the United States is set to be headed by a black woman. Coricka White has been appointed the refinery’s manager, The Baltimore Sun reports.

From ground up;

White started with the company in 2003 as a Process Engineer. Her strong work ethic, passion and brilliance saw her work her way up landing senior positions, including assistant manager of ASR Group’s Chalmette Refinery in Louisiana and  assistant manager of the Baltimore office.

As part of her new responsibilities she will manage $20 million installations of refined sugar silos which provides nearly 14 million pounds of storing capacity.

For White, her appointment is meant to inspire others to confidently mount top positions in underrepresented spaces:

“I’m looking at myself as being a trailblazer and hope that I can pave the way for folks like myself to follow,” she was quoted as saying in a statement, according to the news outlet. “I definitely stand on the shoulders of some very strong folks here, and I’d like to think of my success as the success of the Domino family. It speaks to how progressive our organization is. I’m proud to say yes, and happy to be the first—but I definitely don’t want to be the last.”

White holds a degree in Chemistry from the University of Virginia and a master’s of Business Administration from the Florida Institute of Technology.
