Sun Sentinel Broward Edition - Society Scene - Broward - - Front Page -

Phi­lan­thropist Lor­raine Thomas, the co-founder of the Dave Thomas Foun­da­tion for Adop­tion, was among the hon­orees who re­ceived the 2016 El­lis Is­land Medal of Honor from the Na­tional Eth­nic Coali­tion of Or­ga­ni­za­tions in an awards cer­e­mony held on El­lis Is­land.

The El­lis Is­land Medals of Honor em­body the spirit of Amer­ica in their cel­e­bra­tion of pa­tri­o­tism, tol­er­ance, brother­hood and di­ver­sity. They rec­og­nize in­di­vid­u­als who have made it their mis­sion to share with those less for­tu­nate their wealth of knowl­edge, in­domitable courage, bound­less com­pas­sion, unique tal­ents and self­less gen­eros­ity; all while main­tain­ing the tra­di­tions of their eth­nic her­itage as they up­hold the ideals and spirit of Amer­ica. As al­ways, NECO re­mains ded­i­cated to the main­te­nance and restora­tion of Amer­ica’s great­est sym­bol of its im­mi­grant his­tory, El­lis Is­land.
