Hawkinson Scholarship Fund Award Ceremony

Annual Award Ceremony sponsored by the Hawkinson Fund for Peace and Justice at Grace University Lutheran Church, located on the University of Minnesota campus in Minneapolis, Minnesota. On November 13, 1988, 33 years ago this week, the Vincent L. Hawkinson Foundation held its first award ceremony at Grace church with the then-mayor of St Paul, George Latimer, delivering a presentation on that auspicious occasion. This evening is the 28th such event.  We lift up examples of heroes, both young and old, who pursue their passions for peace and justice so that others can be inspired to “Go and do likewise.” The Hawkinson Fund is named for Vince Hawkinson, pastor at Grace Church for 30 years. He believed religious leaders should speak out against injustice and violence.
