WHITESBORO, NY - The Utica-Oneida County Branch of the NAACP held its 9th Annual Diversity Affair at Hart's Hill Inn Saturday.

Oneida County and the Utica area are home to people of many different cultures, races, ethnicities, and lifestyles.

Making the area a very diverse place to live.

The NAACP recognized the diversity that exists not only in the community, but in the work place as well.

"Oneida County is very, very diverse" says Darlene Mack-Brown, the committee chair of the Diversity Affair. "We just want to make people more aware of the diversity that we have. We also want to make sure that people become even more diverse, especially in the work place."

WKTV was one of the organizations honored for its diversity.

Vice President and General Manager Steve McMurray accepted the award on behalf of the station.

Other honorees included Oneida County District Attorney Scott McNamara, Diane Berry, Dr. Joseph Mouk, and Chris Sunderlin, Executive Director of the Midtown Utica Community Center.
