Copeland received the Martin Luther King, Jr. Legacy Award at the 7th Annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Legacy and Scholarship Awards Dinner at the Overland Park Marriott Hotel on Jan. 17. Roland, who serves as the Olathe Police Department’s spokesperson, was honored with the Diversity Advocate in Law Enforcement Award, and MNU head football coach Jonathan Quinn was given the Diversity Advocate in Sports Award.
The three joined other diversity award honorees Yael Abouhalkah of The Kansas City Star, Adriane Shands of Metcalf Bank, and Kansas City, Mo. School Superintendent John Covington.
