A.D. Porter & Sons Funeral Home, Inc. and the Louisville Chapter of Chums, Inc. will receive the highest honor (Acacia Award) for their many years of service to the community at large. Both of these recipients are truly worthy of this honor.

Chums, Inc. is a non-profit organization that provides opportunities for women to meet in friendship and fun, to encourage a spirit of helpfulness, and to use their many talents in service to the community. The organization promotes civic, cultural, educational and social improvement. An ancillary focus of the organization is to enrich the lives of children by helping them to develop to their fullest intellectual, moral, emotional, physical and social potential. The national theme is "Listen to the Children." Louisville Chums has worked with the Office of Multicultural Ministry's Catholic Enrichment Center for several years on many initiatives focusing on young women.

Mrs. Jo Ann Cooper, Holy Rosary Parish (Springfield) will receive the Genevieve Boone Award. This award is given to those individuals who have been trailblazers in the areas of cultural enrichment, education and formation from an Africentric perspective. A leader in her parish, throughout the Catholic community and the rural community at large, she embodies the essence of what Mrs. Genevieve Boone stood for.

The keynote address will be given by Fr. Ricardo Bailey from Atlanta, GA. Father Ricardo was born in Atlanta and attended Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic School and St. Thomas More Catholic School. He graduated with honors from Xavier University in May of 1997 with a Bachelors Degree in Sociology.
