As usual the event attracted a wide variety of attendees, from local churchgoers, educators and teenagers to Mayor Charlie Hales, and both of Oregon’s U.S. Senators, Ron Wyden and Jeff Merkley.

Winner of the Skanner News’ Drum Major for Justice Award, an honor bestowed on a local resident who has dedicated their life to Civil Rights, went to Joyce Braden Harris, EquityAssistanceCenter director for Education Northwest.

Event emcee, Bobbie Dore Foster, executive editor of The Skanner News Group, presided over the presentation of dozens of college scholarships for local students attending schools around the country.
