Gary Varvel honored with Robert F. Kennedy award

I broke the news last week that Gary Varvel would be this year’s Robert F. Kennedy award for editorial cartooning and now it is official. The award is given to journalists to recognize their work on human rights, social justice, and the power of individuals to make a difference. Varvel’s 11-part series, “The Path of Hope”, highlighted some of the underprivileged living in the Indianapolis area and individual and community efforts to improve their circumstances.

Gary will be presented the award on May 18 by Ethel Kennedy at a ceremony at The United States Institute of Peace, in Washington, D.C.

Congratulations, Gary!
