SPOKANE, Wash. -- KREM 2 News Anchor Randy Shaw was honored during the inaugural Spokane Human Rights Awards Ceremony at City Hall Thursday.
Winners were announced in three categories: individuals, youth (under 21) and organizations.
Spokane Mayor David Condon and Spokane Human Rights Chair Lisa Rosier presented Shaw with a Human Rights Award for helping to raise money for several local charities, including the Alzheimer’s Association, the American Red Cross, and Inland Northwest Honor Flight, which honors and assists war veterans around the region.
“It has long been our goal to honor the individuals and organizations who make a difference every day in our community,” said Lisa Rosier, chair of the Spokane Human Rights Commission. “Now we are able to say thank you with the City’s first award recognizing the citizen’s commitment to human rights in Spokane.”
City Council President Ben Stuckart and Tony Stewart from the Kootenai County Task Force on Human Relations were also in attendance as presenters at Thursday’s ceremony.
