Senator Johnny Isakson (R-GA) will receive the inaugural ‘John S. McCain Service to Country Award’ from Voices for National Service today in recognition of his strong support for national service, most recently for his efforts to eliminate the post-service education grant for AmeriCorps members.
The presentation will be made this evening in Washington, D.C. at the 16th Annual Friends of National Service Awards. The award is sponsored by Voices for National Service, a diverse coalition of national service programs, state service commissions and individual champions who work to ensure Americans of all ages can serve and volunteer in their community. It will be formally presented to Isakson by Cindy McCain, the widow of the late Senator John McCain.
