Western Heritage Award








John Kuri was awarded the Christopher for One More Mountain.  First presented in 1949, the Christopher Awards were established by the organization's founder, Father James Keller, to salute media that affirm the highest values of the human spirit. Their goal is to encourage men, women and children to pursue excellence in creative arenas that have the potential to influence a mass audience positively. Award winners encourage audiences to see the better side of human nature and motivate artists and the general public to use their best instincts on behalf of others.
