The Mississippi Trailblazers will also mark its 10th anniversary by simultaneously honoring three Mississippians who have made significant impact on their state’s difficult journey toward racial diversity and reconciliation: Ole Miss Chancellor Emeritus Robert C. Khayat and the Rt. Revs. Duncan M. Gray Jr. and Duncan M. Gray III. The father and son Grays, who have both served as bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Mississippi, will receive the first Dr. Robert C. Khayat Distinguished Award for Diversity and Racial Reconciliation.
