Governor Haley Barbour accepts Friends of National Service State Leadership Award

Bookmark and Share Mississippi Governor Haley Barbour has accepted his state’s 2010 Voices for National Service State Leadership Award.

Voices for National Service is a diverse coalition of national service programs, state commissions, and individual champions committed to expanding opportunities for Americans of all ages to serve and volunteer that was founded in 2003, in response to major cuts in federal funding that threatened hundreds of AmeriCorps programs.

Annual events organized by the coalition have drawn in new champions and strengthened support for service from federal, state, and local leaders. These events include the Friends of National Service Awards Reception, honoring public and private leaders who have shown extraordinary support for national service, and the National Service Capitol Hill Day, educating the nation’s public leaders in Washington, DC..
