WASHINGTON, D.C. — U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) recently met with Jefferson Award Recipient Nathan Hurd of Grove City. Hurd received recognition for his work as a founding member and volunteer with Baby Will, a nonprofit benefiting families affected by Sudden Infant Death Syndrome.

   “The Jefferson Awards honor everyday people who work hard to make our state and country a better place to call home,” Brown said. “Mr. Hurd deserves enormous praise for his work in bettering America’s future.”

The Jefferson Award for Public Service was cofounded by Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Sam Bear, and U.S. Senator Robert Taft, Jr. to honor United States citizens for community and public service.
