Pathfinder Award: Created in 1986, the Pathfinder Award recognizes individuals or organizations that, in the spirit of Dr. King, are initiators or action takers in the struggle for equal treatment, human rights and non-violence. The award represents the ideal that all people should be treated fairly and equally without the fear of discrimination on any basis.

Young Pathfinder Award: Added in 2002, the Young Pathfinder Award, recognizes the commitment and courage displayed by area young people to achieve fair and equal treatment for all, healthy communities and peaceful resolution to conflicts.

Business Pathfinder Award: First presented in 2003, the Business Pathfinder Award recognizes area businesses who strive for equal treatment, human rights and non-violence in the workplace.


The Martin Luther King, Jr. Commemorative Board is always looking for sponsors to help in any capacity at our annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Celebration. We can always use additional volunteers to join our committee as well!
