Humanitarian work honored

Honorees Martha Beetley, left, and Tim Taylor talk with Yvonne Clinton after the 2012 Thong Hy Huynh Awards ceremony Tuesday evening. Clinton is a member of the Davis Human Relations Commission, which chose the six recipients. Beetley received the Lifetime Achievement Award for her literacy work with Latino students and families at North Davis Elementary School, and Taylor was named the Public Servant of the Year for his service on the Davis Board of Education. Also honored were Anna Sturla and Henry Anker as young humanitarians; former California Supreme Court Justice Cruz Reynoso for civil rights advocacy; and the Davis Food Co-op for excellence in community involvement. The awards, named for a Davis High School student who was fatally stabbed on campus in 1983 in a racially motivated fight, were established in 2004 to honor humanitarian and community work in Davis.
