Betsy Fradd chosen for 2009 Martin Luther King Distinguished Service Award!

Betsy Fradd will receive the 2009 Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Distinguished Service Award on behalf of The Pajama Program. The award will be presented at the 2009 Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. celebration, January 15, 2009, 6-8PM in the CUB Junior Ballroom on the WSU/Pullman campus. This year the committee received a record number of exceptionally strong nominations.
