The Grinnell College Innovator for Social Justice Prize honors individuals who have demonstrated leadership in their fields and who show creativity, commitment, and extraordinary accomplishment in effecting positive social change. Each prize carries an award of $100,000, half to the winning individual(s) and half to their organization.
In 2014, Susan Sanning, director of service learning and civic engagement, and Saunia Powell, assistant director of post-graduate service and coordinator of the Grinnell Prize, visited three organizations in Africa that received The Grinnell Prize. They will be the featured speakers at the Grinnell Regional Medical Center SE*ED program on Monday, June 8. Sanning and Powell will share their experiences and discuss what these organizations are doing to benefit the people in the region. The program meets at 10 a.m. in the Caulkins Community Room at Drake Community Library. All are invited to this free program. Refreshments are served beginning at 9:30 a.m.
Parking is available at the Drake Community Library, along Park Street, on Fifth Avenue, and in the First Presbyterian Church parking lot.
