During the Fall 2010 Conference, CCA was honored to present the first annual David A Sanchez GLBT (Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender) Award to Mr. Joseph Franko, Professor at Mt. San Antonio College.
As a student at Iowa State University, Joe started the first gay liberation group at a time and in a place where doing so was neither common place nor safe. For the past 18 years Mr. Franko has been advisor to Lambda, Mt. SAC’s GLBT group on campus. He has come to the aid of students who have needed emergency housing and scholarship funds for students whose parents kicked them out of their homes upon finding out their children were gay.
However, his dedication is not limited to the Mt. SAC campus. Mr. Franko, helped start a gay liberation student group in Hawaii. This group succeeded in getting a bullying law passed to protect GLBT students. Professor Franko is the first openly gay, Presiding Clerk of Pacific Yearly Meeting, a gathering of Quakers from California, Hawaii, and Central America.
Joe started two schools for girls in the Afghanistan refugee camps on the border between Pakistan and Afganistan. The schools currently have 600 girls from ages 6-13. In addition, Joseph Franko was one of the pioneers who brought distance learning to the Mt. SAC campus and helped in starting the Mt. SAC Honors program. Read more ...
