In accepting the award,
Horrigan said, "if prejudice
is part of being human, so
too is the nobility to recog-
nize its injustice and so too
are the strength and wil-
lingness to rise above it.
- "I am proud to accept
on behalf of my company
this Human Relations
Award.
"I am especially proud
since the award comes from
an organization that has
never considered itself
above involvement in the
eternal struggle to elimi-
nate the gross injustices of
bigotry and prejudice."
