Carroll to receive cultural competency award
Doris Wright Carroll, associate professor of special education, counseling and student affairs, will be presented with the Cultural Competency Award from the Kansas City chapter of the Nation’s Voice on Mental Illness at its annual meeting and awards ceremony Thursday in Independence, Mo.
Carroll was selected by a unanimous vote. The organization’s awards are given to key people in the community who have had a positive influence in the field of mental health awareness and advocacy.
“This award is meaningful because it is for my work creating community by offering diversity workshops for arts groups,” Carroll said. “This recognition is very special indeed.”
