Office of Multicultural Affairs has chosen Carl Crawford
as its Community Diversity Award Recipient for the 2012-13 school year.
Carl is a graduate of UW-Superior and played and coached basketball with the
Yellowjackets as well. Carl was the featured speaker at the February
Diversity Dialog program on campus.
Carl will be honored at the Graduates of Color Reception Friday, May 17th in the
Multicultural Center room 232 in Old Main. The Graduates of Color
Reception is an annual event and this award is given each year to a community
member connected to UW-Superior that has been a valuable asset to the helping
of persons of color and enriching the community as a whole.
Crawford is the Intercultural Center Coordinator at Lake Superior College and
has been part of many community boards and non-profit organizations.
Crawford said, "I'm honored and humbled that UW-Superior chose me as the
Diversity Award winner this year. I have great memories of being part of the
campus and the black student group when I was there. UW-Superior has been
committed to diversity for all of their students, faculty and staff."
Alvin (Chip) Beal, diversity coordinator at UW-Superior said they couldn't have
picked a better representative for the award. "I believe Carl Crawford is what
this award is all about. He not only lives in the community, and works in
the community, he is community. Carl embodies encouragement and exudes
that to everyone he comes in contact with. When you meet Carl, you just
want to be a better person."
The 16th annual Graduates of Color program will
run from 6-8 p.m. Friday May 17 and will include cultural performances and presentations and is open to the public.
