Kozyak wins diversity award

first_img Kozyak wins diversity award April 15, 2005 Regular News Kozyak wins diversity awardcenter_img Growing up in a totally segregated city in southern Illinois, John Kozyak never had a conversation with a black person until he was in college in the mid-1960s. As the Coral Gables lawyer says, “I have done quite a bit of catching up since then.”Promoting diversity and mentoring law school students and young lawyers is his self-professed passion and mission, and Kozyak has received many awards through the years for those efforts.But a recent Diversity Advocate/Individual Award presented by The South Florida Business Journal at a Diversity Works! luncheon took on special significance for Kozyak because of the January 24 death of his hero, Henry Latimer, killed in a single car crash.Latimer, the only black elected member of The Florida Bar Board of Governors, wrote this December 7, in nominating Kozyak for the award: “When it comes to reaching out to build stepping stones toward making diversity a reality in every aspect of our daily lives, John has boundless energy. His persona and demeanor are magnetic. People are moved and touched by the genuineness they sense and feel in John’s mission to bring diversity to the level where it is no longer a news item. His work is predicated solely on his belief that the playing field should be level for everyone irrespective of race, gender, religion, natural origin, or ethnicity.”When it came time for Kozyak to accept the award, he dedicated it to Latimer.“When I learned that Henry Latimer died, I cried—as many did—and decided the people he touched needed to carry on,” Kozyak said. “Although proud of my work in promoting diversity, there can be no comparison to what Henry did, so I dedicated my award to Henry Latimer.”last_img read more

Jamie Vardy scores in record 11th straight Premier League game

first_img The England forward opened the scoring against Manchester United in the 24th minute on Saturday to break Ruud van Nistelrooy’s 10-game mark, which had stood since 2003. Vardy netted his 14th goal of the season when he latched onto Christian Fuchs’ pass and fired in across David De Gea from 12 yards after Kasper Schmeichel had launched a quick break from a United corner. Leicester striker Jamie Vardy has set a new Barclays Premier League record after scoring in his 11th straight game. The 28-year-old’s run started with a late penalty in the 1-1 draw at Bournemouth in August and has included braces against Arsenal and Southampton, a winner against Watford and the record-equalling strike at Newcastle last week. Vardy’s goals have powered the Foxes, under Claudio Ranieri, to the top of the Premier League – although they were knocked off before they kicked off against United thanks to Manchester City’s 3-1 win over Southampton. He has only failed to score in three games for Leicester this season and also became an England international in June, just three years after becoming non-league football’s first £1million player following a move to the King Power Stadium from Fleetwood in 2012. Bastian Schweinsteiger cancelled out Vardy’s opener with a powerful header from close range to make it 1-1 at the break. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more
