There is something rather impressive about receiving recognition for one’s life. Awards for adults are few and far between and when they come, it is a humbling experience. Even more humbling, is being honored by those who know you well and knew you when you were not yet governor or a leader in business. It was clear that this meant quite a bit to those who were honored.
