By May 15, 2018News

Auburn University will celebrate the 25th anniversary of the International Quality of Life Awards on Dec. 3 at the United Nations in New York by honoring legendary musical artist Lionel Richie and pioneering broadcast journalist and women’s advocate Judy Woodruff. Auburn’s College of Human Sciences launched the International Quality of Life Awards in 1994 to recognize people and partnerships representing all sectors of society that have made significant and lasting contributions to individual, family and community well-being locally and around the world. Richie also is known for his work to support causes related to breast cancer research, HIV/AIDS, human rights, famine and poverty, and is a generous supporter of the United Negro College Fund. Judy Woodruff, the 2018 IQLA Laureate, is the anchor and managing editor of the “PBS NewsHour.” An award-winning journalist and trailblazer for women in broadcast news, Woodruff began her career in 1970 as a reporter for CBS-affiliate WAGA-TV in Atlanta.
