Following today’s announcement of the state’s Martin Luther King Jr. Award winners, State Rep. Michael Sheehy (D-Oregon) congratulated the four Lucas County award recipients, two of which are from the 46th House District which is represented by Sheehy in the legislature.

“I was thrilled, but certainly not surprised to see our communities recognized statewide for their bold, pioneering work towards a culture of justice,” said Sheehy, “I extend hearty congratulations and deep gratitude to my neighbors, and look forward to working with them to build bridges between all Ohioans.”

In-district awardees The Toledo Buffalo Soldiers Motorcycle Club of Maumee received the Cultural Awareness award for its network of educational and cross-cultural relationships, while Pastor Michael E. Carter of Toledo was awarded the Governor’s Humanitarian award for his leadership within countless service and youth programs.

Two other organizations receiving the award, Groomed for Greatness and the Lucas County Mental Health and Recovery Services Board, also work to support communities in the district.
