The campus is once again inviting nominations for the 2011 Tony Hill Memorial Award.

Tony Hill was a beloved community leader and mentor whose gifts as a mediator promoted the causes of justice and equality. After his death in 2007, UC Santa Cruz joined with his family to establish this award to honor his legacy.

Presentation of the Tony Hill Memorial Award is a highlight of the annual Martin Luther King Jr. Convocation, which will take place on January 31, 2011. Tony was a tireless volunteer who served on the convocation planning committee for many years.

The award recognizes an individual whose work and actions exemplify Tony's commitment to our community and to social justice. Past recipients include Luis Alejo, a public-interest attorney and Watsonville City Councilman who was recently elected to the California State Assembly, and Santa Cruz Councilman Ryan Coonerty.
