The Board of Directors of the Oregon Holocaust Resource Center presents their Circle of Life Award to recognize those who have worked tirelessly to teach the lessons of the Holocaust. The award expresses OHRC’s gratitude and rewards a long-term commitment to and personal investment in passing those lessons on to current and future generations.
The 2012 Circle of Life Award Luncheon will take place on Sunday, October 14th 2012 at the Multnomah Athletic Club. This year, we will be honoring three individuals who have made efforts beyond expectation to support the mission of the OHRC.
Reverend Ross Miller
Chancellor Mary Jo Tully
We are proud to present Jeannie Smith as our Speaker for this luncheon. Jeannie is a Second Generation member committed to telling the story of her Mother, Irene Opdyke, a Polish Catholic who risked her life to rescue Jews in the face of Nazi occupation. We are honored that Jeannie, herself a continuing advocate for Holocaust Education, has agreed to be our Speaker at this event.
We are so pleased that Mike Donahue will be serving as our Master of Ceremonies. During a broadcasting career that now spans five decades, Mike Donahue has covered seven governors. He started at KOIN-TV as an intern having just graduated from the University of Oregon where he earned a degree in journalism and selection to Phi Beta Kappa. In 2000, the regional Emmy Awards in Seattle gave Mike the Silver Circle Award for lifetime achievement award.
