Seymore Kaplan Humanitarian Award Assembly

**date change – adjust your calendars
June 15th, 8am

Each spring, Seattle Public schools honor elementary and middle school students who epitomize the values of Seymour Kaplan.

Mr. Kaplan was Washington State’s Man of the Year for 1972. He was also the Northwest’s Anti-Defamation League director, serving from 1956 until his death in 1975. Mr. Kaplan was once quoted as saying, “It’s not just about being nice, it’s about where you stick your head out.” He dedicated his life to human relations, helping people to overcome prejudice and accept differences. Additionally, Mr. Kaplan’s wife Sara began her Seattle Public Schools teaching career at Meany Middle School in 1966 before teaching social studies at Franklin High School for nearly two decades. In his honor, the “Seymour Kaplan Award” was established for fifth and eighth grade students, to recognize the importance celebrating students who stand up for those who cannot stand up for themselves.

Sand Point Elementary will present Seymour Kaplan Humanitarian awards at the June 8th assembly. All are welcome to attend.
