ASHEVILLE – William Murdock, executive director of Eblen Charities, one of the Buncombe County's most effective crisis ministries, was recognized internationally last week after being awarded the Mother Teresa Prize for Global Peace and Leadership.
The prize acknowledges Mother Teresa's philosophy that the highest level of leadership is found in public service. Through that service, the seeds of global peace are sown, said Jamie Minton, President of the Luminary Leadership Network, the Atlanta-based organization which distributed the award.
"It means Eblen has a greater responsibility now not only to continue our work, but to reach more and more families," said Murdock of the recognition."This is a great honor for everyone that has anything to do with Eblen. The award belongs to all of us. It's for the people who are here for heating assistance today. It's for the ones that are in line for Christmas help, or in need of a coat or housing."
