MURFREESBORO — Due to the busy holiday season, you now have more time to honor people who have spent their lives dedicated to the greater good.
The MTSU Black History Month Committee has expanded the deadline for submitting nominees for awards at its annual Unity Luncheon to Wednesday, Dec. 28. Nominations may be submitted at http://www.mtsu.edu/aahm/unity-awards.php.
The Unity Luncheon, an MTSU tradition since 1996, occurs during the university’s annual celebration of Black History Month each February. The event honors unsung heroes who are 60 years of age or older, have lived in Middle Tennessee for 25 years or more and who have made outstanding contributions to their community.
Awards are presented in categories of education, community service, civility, excellence in sports and contributions to black arts. Nominations may be submitted in one category only.
For more information, contact Daniel Green, director of intercultural and diversity affairs and chair of the Black History Month Committee, at 615-898-5812 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
