The 2013 Teasley award was given to  Dale Daniels, Holmdel, Executive Director of the Center for Holocaust, Human Rights and Genocide Education (Chhange) at Brookdale Community College. As the director of what was formerly known as the Holocaust Center, she has made a real difference in bringing issues of bias crimes and discrimination to the forefront of the center’s activities.

The MCHRC presents the recipient a hurricane candle holder symbolic of those who do shine a light and allow others to shine also, even while the world around them may be stormy or unsettling.

Freeholder John Curley, of Middletown, and Assemblywoman  Mary Pat Angelini, of Ocean Township, also provided recognition for Dale, who responded to the award with inspiring comments about her work.  Earl's sister, Melissa Teasley, from Philadelphia PA shared poignant comments on Earl's personality.
