WICHITA, Kansas — People of all faiths came together Monday in Wichita to honor those who are working to make the world a better place.
Inter-Faith Ministries officials announced their Humanitarian awards recipients for 2013.
It includes Star Lumber Company, Timothy Relph a homicide detective for the Wichita Police Department, and Paul and Margaret Miller that founded a non-profit dedicated to educating the public about recycling, Sister Ann Catherine Burger for helping the needy, and Randy and Suzy Storms for their work on addressing community issues.
They’ll be honored at a dinner later this year, an event that was restarted last year, after a three-year hiatus.
“I thought it was important to bring it back because it was a recognition of good things that happened in our community because of the efforts of people who may not be recognized as community leaders, but who decide to take a problem and organize their resources and solve it,” said Anne Corriston, Executive Director, Inter-Faith Ministries.
This year’s awards dinner will be held in August.
