King panel’s exec lunches with Hill
Arkansas Martin Luther King Jr. Commission Executive Director DuShun Scarbrough and a group of commission interns traveled to Washington, D.C., last week, visiting Capitol Hill and stopping by the White House Visitors Center.
They were also lunch guests of Arkansas’ U.S. Rep. French Hill, who joined them Thursday at Hill Country Barbecue Market.
“I’m really proud of the [King] commission in Arkansas and what they’re doing to engage youth and create mentorship opportunities,” said Hill, a Republican from Little Rock.
While in Washington, Scarbrough also attended the NextGen Silent Hero Award ceremony. It recognizes “a public service leader who has operated behind the scenes, silently working in a dedicated and committed fashion, without the limelight, who has laid the foundation for stellar public service results and community change.”
NextGen is affiliated with GovLoop, which has been described as a “Facebook for feds.”
Scarbrough said he was pleased to be one of the finalists for the honor. “It’s a true blessing,” he said.
