Miss DC receives Pollin Award for Community Service

Former Washington Bullets player Ledell Eackles presented me with the Verizon 2006-2007 Pollin Award for outstanding dedication to the DC Community at last night’s Wizards vs. Magic basketball game. That’s us – up on the big screen!!

This award was named after Abe Pollin, Chairperson for the Washington Wizards and Verizon Center. Pollin is a man who is celebrated for his willingness to help improve the quality of life in his community and beyond.

The Pollin Award honors individuals who show an outstanding dedication to their community. Pollin Award winners are chosen based on their activity in the community and the impact they make on it.

A special thank you to the Verizon Center Community Relations staff for arranging such a special and memorable awards presentation.
