Characters Unite Program Seeks Nominations

Suddenlink is again partnering with USA Network for the third Characters Unite Awards, part of the network’s ongoing public affairs campaign to address social injustices and bridge cultural divides. The program recognizes extraordinary individuals who have made significant and lasting efforts to champion civil and human rights in their communities.

The nomination period for the awards runs through March 15. Entries, including a maximum 500-word essay on how the nominee meets the criteria of character, impact and influence, can be submitted online.

Last year, Chantel Miller, of Suddenlink-served Greenville, N.C., won an award for a photo documentary she created. In 2010, Jan Lilly-Stewart, who lives in Suddenlink-served Charleston, W. Va., was honored.
