WASHINGTON, D.C. – This week, Family Research Council announced plans to honor Dr. Bill Bennett, former Secretary of the Department of Education in the Reagan administration, Drug Czar, best-selling author, host of the top-rated radio show “Morning in America,” with the Vision and Leadership Award to be given during this year’s Values Voter Summit on September 9-11, 2016 at the Omni Shoreham Hotel in Washington, D.C.
Tony Perkins, President of Family Research Council, released the following statement:
“Bill Bennett is beloved for a lot of things – the wisdom of his best-selling books, the warm intellect he brought to mornings across America, the common sense policies that he championed under Presidents Reagan and Bush, and the voice of reason he spoke into divided political classes. For all that he has done as a national leader, broadcaster, author, speaker, and friend, FRC is proud to award Dr. Bennett with FRC’s Vision and Leadership Award at a special Gala Dinner on September 10 in Washington, D.C. The gala dinner will cap off the 11th annual Values Voter Summit, which is a fitting tribute to a man who has been a highlight of every VVS he’s participated in,” concluded Perkins.
Other confirmed Summit speakers include: Senator James Lankford (R-Okla.), Lt. Col. Oliver North, Dr. James Dobson, Governor Matt Bevin (R-Ky.), Al Robertson, Fox News’ Todd Starnes, the Benham Brothers, Erick Erickson, Star Parker, and many more.
