The Gail Kerr HRCules Award

The Metro Human Relations Commission’s Gail Kerr HRCules award is given monthly to a community member that is a hero for human relations. The goal is to highlight what people are doing right in the community in the hope that others will follow their lead. The award was named in Gail Kerr’s honor because she was a champion for those whose voices needed to be heard. The MHRC believes that the honorees of this award will embody Gail’s passion and spirit for Nashville and all of its residents.

At this kickoff ceremony, the MHRC will be honoring awardees from the months of March through July. Awardees are as follows:

March: Gail Kerr-For a lifetime of humanitarian efforts

April: Michael Spalding-For helping to ensure all people have access to an affordable education

May: Rashed Fakhruddin-For promoting multicultural awareness

June: Neal Darby-For a lifetime dedicated to the promotion and preservation of civil rights
