The Coro Center For Civic Leadership held its third annual Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Leadership and Diversity Awards Jan. 18 at Heinz Field.

The Leadership Award was presented to an individual who exemplifies outstanding leadership in business, nonprofits or government. The Diversity Award was given to two organizations—one for an organization of more than 50 employees and one for less than 50 employees.
