Scott Receives Leaders of Democracy Award from The Memorial Foundation
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Yesterday, Congressman Robert C. “Bobby” Scott (VA-03) received the Leaders of Democracy Award from The Memorial Foundation, the builders of the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial. Following the dedication of the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial by President Obama, The Memorial Foundation was created to ensure that all visitors understand the four major tenets of Dr. King’s national memorial – democracy, justice, hope and love.
Congressman Scott received the award in recognition of his consistent efforts to display leadership amongst his peers and within the community.
“I am honored to receive the Leader of Democracy Award from The Memorial Foundation for my work in Congress,” said Rep. Scott. “The Memorial Foundation has been committed to preserving the work and legacy of the great Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and continues to leverage the memorial’s role as a beacon of inspiration for future generations of Americans. It is an honor to be recognized by the Foundation as a legislator who is working to continue Dr. King’s legacy.”
