2016 Georgene Clark Diversity Champion Award [link]
Date: 3/29/2016 12:00:00 AM
Organization: Diversity Committee, Delta State University [link]
Abstract: Delta State University’s Diversity Committee established the award to recognize individuals and divisions/departments that have made extraordinary efforts to promote diversity awareness at Delta State and in the broader community. According to Arlene Sanders, chair of the Diversity Committee, “For several years, The Delta Center has offered programs that highlight the Mississippi Delta’s rich cultural diversity. They offer National Endowment for the Humanities workshops that attract educators from all over the country to learn about the Delta. They manage the Mississippi Delta National Heritage Area that offers programs like the Delta Jewels Oral History Partnership about African American church mothers. They direct an international blues project that highlights the global influence of blues music and culture. For these reasons and many more, The Delta Center is most deserving of this award.”
