As Leadership Center for Excellence Class of 2022 Co-Class Ambassador, it was a pleasure to join fellow LCE Alumni and welcome the Class of 2023.

Thank you Leadership Center for Excellence
Friends,

Tonight, I had the great honor of receiving the very first Racial Equity Civic Engagement award. This award was presented by Volunteer Arlington and the Leadership Center for Excellence.

View Recorded Presentation here: https://youtu.be/BbAg-JAthew?t=876

This is truly an honor, and I am so grateful to be recognized by my peers, colleagues, and the entire Arlington community.

We are not done though.
We have much to keep working for.
We are still working to become one nation.
We are still working for liberty.
We are still working for justice for all.

So, I ask you to join me. Do not surrender.

It is time to take action.

Humbly yours,
JD
