While best-known for a half-century career in politics, the 72nd Seattle-King County First Citizen also counts military service, lawyer, member of the 9/11 Commission, college instructor, runner, and grandfather among his achievements. In recognition of an exceptional public service career and his dedication to various community and nonprofit interests, former U.S. Senator Slade Gorton will be honored at a civic banquet on May 27, 2010.

The First Citizen Award, established in 1939, celebrates community leadership, volunteerism and public service. Past recipients hail from humanitarian organizations, charitable and educational institutions, arts groups, environmental causes and other civic endeavors. The First Citizen Award is believed to be the oldest and most prestigious award, of its kind, given in the Seattle metropolitan area.

    Its here- Tomorrow we salute the Senator and do some pretty wonderful things for a group of students ( raise scholarship funds), to make it a bit easier to pay for their education and make a difference.

    You may be able to get a ticket to this event by calling the office.
