The City of Morgantown’s Human Rights Commission recognized PSALM students as an organization that exemplifies the spirit of diversity and human rights and contribute to making Morgantown a more inclusive community in honor of Human Rights Day on December 10, 2016. PSALM students were selected to receive the first Don Spencer Human Rights Award. PSALM students were presented with the award at a ceremony on December 20th at Morgantown City Council Chambers. The students were also honored with a reception following the award ceremony.
Jan Derry, director of the HRC, stated, “I believe the leadership, role modeling of compassion for our global neighbors and activism demonstrated by the students of PSALM will go a long way for moving our city to becoming a more inclusive community. I personally am thrilled to learn of such a remarkable program and feel blessed to be able to be a part of bestowing this recognition to PSALM students”.
Many thanks to ALL campaigners of the ICBL/CMC who continue to serve as role models for our students!
