Coral Snodgras, PhD, professor of management and Olivia Owens ’19, executive vice president, Undergraduate Student Association (USA), are the recipients of the college’s 2019 Martin Luther King Jr. Award.

Martin Luther King Jr. Awards recognize Canisius community members, students and non-students who promote social justice, racial harmony, civil rights, advocacy for the poor or change through non-violence.

“We had so many great nominations of faculty, students and staff who are following in Dr. King’s footsteps,” said Gary Everett, retired chief of Canisius College Public Safety and chair, Martin Luther King Jr. Awards Committee. “It was an extremely difficult decision. Congratulations to our 2019 recipients.”

Honorees will be recognized during Spring Honors Convocation.
