The Tom Miller Human Rights Award

Barry Waldman

A man from the Northside has won the Cape Breton Regional Municipality's Tom Miller Human Rights Award.

Barry Waldman started a program called EPIC 16 years ago. EPIC stands for Educational Program Innovations Charity.

Each year it provides over 70 young people at risk with one-on-one education through peer mentoring. It also provides educational support for the parents and guardians of those children.

Waldman has volunteered his time coordinating EPIC's many projects since 1996. He says he didn't expect the award.
