A man that has given more than 30 years to fighting discrimination and prejudice receives an award from Topeka's Human Relations Commission.
The first Troy Scroggins award was given out Monday to its namesake - Troy Scroggins.
The award recognizes people and public and private entities whose efforts at eliminating discrimination and prejudice are outstanding and noteworthy.
Troy says he has always had a soft spot for Topeka for its historical role in the civil rights movement.
The human relations commission's regular monthly meeting followed the awards ceremony.
