The MLK, Jr. Unsung Hero Award is meant to recognize people from the Monmouth University and greater community who exemplify Dr. King's spirit, life, teachings, and commitment to service. This award is for someone who has a dream for the greater good and works to achieve it, someone who, unfortunately, is not often widely recognized for his or her work. We strive to recognize at least three people at the MLK, Jr. Tribute Celebration each year: a Monmouth University student, a Monmouth University employee, and a Monmouth County community member. Please note that past recipients of the MLK, Jr. Unsung Hero Award are not eligible to receive the award again. A complete list of recipients is included on the left-hand side of this page.
IMPORTANT NOTE:Nominations are due no later than 12 Noon on Friday, December 5, 2014.
