Avenue, Traverse City.
Lee Hornberger, Chair of the Traverse City Human Rights Commission, said:
“Glenda and Ken have dedicated countless hours through their work with the
Jubilee House to make life better for the less fortunate and homeless in
Traverse City. They have made a positive impact on our community and are
especially deserving of the Sara Hardy Humanitarian Award.”
Sara Hardy, a long time resident, through her courageous and determined
actions gave birth to the concept of a Human Rights organization in her
community. Her conduct and professionalism exemplifies the philosophies and
ideals of the Human Rights Commission to promote mutual understanding and
respect among all people and to discourage discriminatory practices.
This award recognizes Sara Hardy’s contributions to the community by
honoring an individual who exemplifies the Human Rights Commission’s
ideals. The recipients of this award are selected by the Traverse City
Human Rights Commission. Recent recipients of the Award include Gertrude
Morgan Springer, Jim Rowlett, Brian Simerson, Eugene Fox, Susan Odgers,
Joe Lada, Helen Cook, Gladys Munoz and Jane Hayes.
We want to encourage the citizens of the Traverse City area to join with us
in recognizing the contributions made by these deserving individuals in the
promotion of human rights.
