PROVIDENCE, R.I. – It was announced by Providence College today, Wednesday, Feb. 9, that Richard Gomes, assistant coach of the volleyball program has been awarded the institution’s Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Vision Award. 
The selection committee for this award considers nominees whose scholarship, community engagement, leadership, or service to others has advanced one or more of the principles which Rev. King embodied: social justice, advocacy, equality, human rights, the promotion of faith, and freedom of all people. 
Gomes, assistant volleyball coach at PC since 2019, has worked to mentor and encourage young people of color since his early days playing and coaching volleyball in New Bedford, Mass. At PC, Gomes serves on the PC Athletics Inclusion Committee and participated in the Black Student Athlete Summit in 2020 and 2021. In 2019, he was chosen to receive the National American Volleyball Coaches Association Diversity Award. Gomes has been instrumental in the success of the PC team, helping it achieve a 7-3 conference record in the 2020 season (played in the spring of 2021), which led to the BIG EAST Coaching Staff of the Year Award.
