Community Outreach Local Leader Honored
The Los Angeles FBI Home Page reads:
In a ceremony at FBI Headquarters, Director Robert S. Mueller, III recognized the recipients of the 2011 Director’s Community Leadership Award. These leaders, selected by their area FBI field office, have demonstrated outstanding contributions to their local communities through service. The FBI is grateful for the work of each of these individuals and organizations on behalf of their communities.
“Whatever the motivation—an unfilled need, a tragic occurrence, a desire to give back—these are people who make things happen and enlist others in their cause,” said Director Mueller. “They are activists who have earned their prestige through good works.”
The Los Angeles Division is pleased to honor the I Have a Dream Foundation for using education to deter students from participating in crime, drugs, gangs, and violence.
Since receiving this honor in late 2011, five local FBI agents have become mentors to our Dreamers.
IHADLA Board member, Richard Wolf, has also been named a “Citizen Agent” with the FBI, and received this honor in an official ceremony in Washington, D.C.
We’re proud of you, Richard, and thank you, FBI!
