WVU Center for Black Culture and Research seeks nominations for 2017 Martin Luther King Jr. Achievement Award

Do you know a person in the West Virginia community who has shown exemplary service in support of social justice issues? The West Virginia University Center for Black Culture and Research is currently seeking nominations for the prestigious Martin Luther King Jr. Achievement Award.
The honor is given to residents of West Virginia who have made substantial contributions to the advancement of concerns surrounding civil rights, humanitarianism, social action and acting as a change agent for an inclusive and equal society for all people.
“Every year I am so honored each year to have the privilege of adding the name of the new MLK Achievement Award winner to the esteemed list of previous winners,” said Marjorie Fuller, director of the Center for Black Culture and Research. “Although every nominee’s service is well-worthy of recognition, I am so thrilled to see who the committee selects to honor this year.”
The deadline for nomination submissions is Friday, Nov. 18 at 4 p.m. The award committee requires that nominators complete the official nomination form along with a two page statement outlining the nominee’s qualifications and credentials.
All nominations can be emailed to or mailed to the MLK Achievement Committee at 590 Spruce St., Morgantown, West Virginia, 26506.
The award will be presented during the 27th annual MLK Unity Breakfast on Monday, Jan. 16. 2017 from 8 a.m. to 10: 30 a.m. in the Mountainlair Ballrooms.
