The Anderson County Human Relations Council has named Gabriel Campbell as a recipient of the 2015 Cory White Diversity Award in recognition of his efforts to promote the qualities of diversity and acceptance within their communities.
The Cory White Diversity Award program was established by the Anderson County HRC to honor the memory of the student designer of the Anderson County Human Relations Council logo, Cory White. It was only after Cory’s tragic death in an automobile accident that the HRC became aware of what an outstanding young man he was. He demonstrated his love and acceptance of all people and went out of his way to make others feel important and valued. The HRC established the Cory White Diversity Award to honor his memory and recognize young people within the community who share his values and strong character. Area schools are invited to nominate students who make a positive impact on peers, teachers, and /or school staff in the areas of human rights, special needs and disabilities, and/or cultural inclusion and acceptance.
