2023 Frances Dancy Hooks Award: Dana Sanchez

Congratulations to Dr. Dana Sanchez for receiving the 2023 Frances Dancy Hooks Award!

The Frances Dancy Hooks Award was first awarded in 1994 when Frances Dancy Hooks, a longtime civil rights activist, and her husband Reverend Benjamin Hooks, former executive director of the NAACP, spoke at the peace breakfast. The award recognizes Oregon State students, staff or faculty who exemplify Frances Dancy Hooks’ work of building bridges across cultures, showing courage in promoting diversity and proudly “walking the talk.”
