Woodrow Wilson Awards to Honor 
Carol and Michael Linn & Sue and Lester Smith in Houston 

WASHINGTON – The Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars will present awards to four distinguished Houston leaders on March 21, 2013.

Carol and Michael Linn will receive the Woodrow Wilson Award for Corporate Citizenship, and Sue and Lester Smith will receive the Woodrow Wilson Award for Public Service. Lucinda and Javier Loya, and Cynthia and Anthony Petrello will serve as Dinner Co-Chairs.

The Woodrow Wilson Award is given to those individuals whose actions and accomplishments, either in their careers or through service, reflect President Woodrow Wilson’s belief that “there is no higher religion than human service. To work for the common good is the greatest creed.” Such individuals have been recognized worldwide by The Wilson Center since 1998.

Previous recipients of the Woodrow Wilson Award in Houston include James Baker III, L.E. and Ginny Simmons, James T. Hackett, and the Honorable Bill White, among others.

Honorary co-chairs for this dinner include the Honorable Hushang Ansary; the Honorable Bill Archer; Jack S. Blanton; Clarence P. Cazalot Jr.; the Honorable Peter R. Coneway; Denton Cooley, M.D.; James T. Hackett; Drayton McLane, Jr.; Fayez Sarofim; L.E. and Ginny Simmons; Anne and John Mendelsohn; the Honorable Bill White.
