Three community members honored for their impact on human rights

Posted:

Tuesday marks the 63rd anniversary of Universal Human Rights Day; and, Siouxland is honoring three Siouxlanders who have positively impacted our community.

The War Eagle Human Rights Award is given to acknowledge those who are seeking to make things better not only for our community but, for human rights worldwide.

One honoree, Leon Koster, is being recognized for his work on behalf of area veterans. He says it's very humbling to receive an award of this stature. "I know there are so many people that have done so much, and I think so much more than what I have done, so it's a very big honor for me," said Koster. "Especially when I consider the two other recipients today and the things that they have done."

Sister Sherley Fineran, a founding member of several Siouxland organizations, received the honor for her work in the community. And final recipient, Audra Cole, is recognized for her many decades of work for Catholic Charities and dedication to the under-served in our community.
