NEA Foundation Honors Special Olympics

By Christy White

On February 7, Special Olympics received the Security Benefit Award for Outstanding Service to Public Education at the National Education Association Foundation’s Salute to Excellence in Education Gala in Washington, D.C. Chairman Dr. Timothy Shriver accepted the award on behalf of Special Olympics. Past recipients of this prestigious award include former President Bill Clinton, Billie Jean King, and Sesame Street Workshop. The NEA Foundation presents this award to individuals and organizations for their lifelong commitment to advancing public education. It is typically presented to those who work outside the field. As part of this award, Security Benefit Corporation is giving a $5,000 contribution to Special Olympics.
