2017 Civility Awards: Recap & Recipients

On November 7, a sellout crowd filled the Greenlease Library at Rockhurst University for the Consensus Civility Awards.

Award winners included DEBATE-KC, Mayor Mark Holland, the Anytown team, Officer Orlando Singleton, Officer Chato Villalobos, and the Kansas City Public Library, with lifetime achievement awards to Sister Corita Bussanmas and Sister Berta Sailer, the founders of Operation Breakthrough.

Each honoree was notable for the way they reflected values such as respect, integrity, engagement, inclusiveness, objectivity, and the desire to find common ground.
