Special Award Presentation
On the 50th anniversary of key civil rights legislation, VMI commemorates Jonathan
Daniels '61, a civil rights activist, who was killed defending a fellow African-American female voter registration worker from bodily harm. In honor of his ultimate act of selfless service, VMI established the Jonathan Daniels Humanitarian Service Award. This award honors distinguished men and women whose lives, sacrifices and commitment to humanitarian causes epitomize the kind of honor and leadership demonstrated by Mr. Daniels, which truly represent VMI's values. In keeping with this year's Leadership Conference theme, VMI will confer this award upon Representative John Lewis of Georgia's 5th Congressional District, 'dubbed one of the Big Six leaders of the Civil Rights Movement,' and for his work as a fierce human rights activist and public servant.
