Recognizes

Dr. Howard with the Harold L. Holliday, Sr. Civil Rights Award

On behalf of the SCLC-GKC board, staff, and volunteers, we thank the NAACP, Kansas City Branch for recognizing the leadership ability of our President, Rev. Dr. Vernon Percy Howard, Jr. and presenting him with the Harold L. Holliday, Sr. Civil Rights Award. Over the past 5 years, Dr. Howard has led our civil rights organization to higher levels of justice work and his commitment to advance the Greater Kansas City Community has often come at the sacrifice of his personal and professional goals in furtherance of civil rights. This recognition is truly an honor and we celebrate with NAACP at their 52nd Annual Freedom Fund Banquet!
