JERRY REINSDORF AND STUDENT LEADERS AT STEVENSON WIN NATIONAL JEFFERSON AWARDS
The 2011 National Ceremonies were particularly special for Chicago. We had the privilege of presenting the Jefferson Award for Greatest Public Service Benefiting the Disadvantaged to Chicago White Sox and Chicago Bulls owner Jerry Reinsdorf. Jerry is best known for delivering 7 world Championships to the City of Chicago and its sports fans. But whatever the record of the White Sox on the field or the record of the Bulls on the court, Jerry and his organizations deliver compassion, generosity, and service to people in Chicago and across the nation on a daily basis. Jerry joins Oprah Winfrey and Mayor Daley is National Jefferson Award winners From Chicago over the years. Congratulations to Mr. Reinsdorf.
