Announcing Our 2021 Awardees







38th Don Carlos Humanitarian


The Don Carlos Humanitarian Award honors individuals who have made Tempe a better place to live through impactful and lasting work that addresses human services in our city.  The award is Tempe’s most prestigious distinction. 

Long-time community leader Margaret Hunnicutt has been named the 38th recipient of the Don Carlos Humanitarian Award.  Margaret is being honored for her extensive commitment and efforts to advocate for and support Tempe’s schools, students and teachers, and residents of our community who are struggling or underserved.  She has served on many boards and volunteered for several organizations addressing education and human service needs in Tempe including Tempe Union High School District Foundation, Tempe Community Action Agency, Newtown CDC and Tempe Community Council.   Margaret inspires many, is compassionate, caring, and committed to helping others live the best quality of life possible.
