Clinton to receive leadership award at TSU
Hillary Rodham Clinton will receive the Barbara Jordan Public-Private Leadership Award from Texas Southern University’s School of Public Affairs and School of Law on Thursday.
Clinton will be the first recipient of this award because of her work in government and dedication to human rights activism, TSU Law School Dean Dannye Holley said in a news release.
“Awarding the first Medallion that bears Barbara Jordan’s name to Hillary Clinton is fitting because this award is geared towards recognizing the life time contributions that an American woman has made to our national public life,” Holley said in a news release.
The leadership award is given to any woman in the world who has achieved success in the public or private sector.
The ceremony will be held in the TSU Health and Physical Education Arena on Thursday at 2:30 p.m.
