A retired anchorman and a school's headmaster are among a group of people being honored for their humanitarian efforts this moth.

The Mali Rising Foundation will present awards to former KSL-TV anchorman Dick Nourse, Reed and Lareen Mellor, of the Mellor Foundation, and Joseph Loftin, headmaster of Wasatch Academy, at the foundation's Oct. 25 ceremony.

"These nominees have demonstrated exceptional civic and charitable responsibility, and are an inspiration to all of us who volunteer our time and efforts to great and worthwhile causes," the foundation said in a statement this week.

Abdoulaye Diop, the Mali ambassador to the United States, will present the awards at the luncheon, which will be held at the Little America Hotel.
