Homer Floyd
Born in Wetumpka, Alabama, in 1936, Homer Floyd came to Massillon, Ohio, with his Mother during his elementary school years. Floyd's football interest began in 1952 while in High School. During his Senior Football Season in 1954, Floyd was named an All-Ohio running back, one of his many football accomplishments. Floyd's natural ability toward football provided him with a Scholarship to Kansas University, where he graduated with a B.A. of Science. From here, Floyd turned his interests toward the Civil Rights Movement. From 1966-1970 Homer Floyd worked as the Executive Director of Kansas Commission on Civil Rights. Floyd was honored by a placement in The Canton Negro Old-timers Hall of Fame in 1992. Following this he was recognized in 2009 by Pittsburgh's "Talk" Magazine as Person of the Year. In 1970, Floyd took the position as Executive Director of Pennsylvania Humans Relation Commission, where he stayed for 41 years until his retirement in 2011.

Homer C. Floyd, d'61, Physical Education (2013)
Floyd was among the first African-Americans in the 20th century to play on KU's football team. He won All-Conference honors in the Big Eight and was co-captain, the first African-American to serve in this leadership role. After earning his KU degree, he began a pioneering career devoted to civil rights enforcement. During the 1960s, he served as executive director of the Topeka Human Relations Commission, the Omaha Human Relations Board and the Kansas Commission on Civil Rights. As executive director of the Pennsylvania Human Relations Commission from 1970 until his retirement in 2011, Mr. Floyd led the resolution of cases that resulted in benefiting millions of racial minorities, women and people with disabilities. In 1999 and 2002, he received the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission Outstanding Achievement Award. When he retired from the Commission in 2011, Gov. Edward Rendell of Pennsylvania declared that Mr. Floyd "…leaves behind the legacy of a far more just and fair Pennsylvania."
