The Washington Center Gala Celebrates 50,000 Alumni

On October 1st, Dr. Patty, Dr. Blackwood, Dr. Laughlin, Tracy Mack, David Pruett, Dr. Ken Jones, Jim Cardwell, John King, and the LCU Washington Interns attended The Washington Center Gala, a celebration and scholarship fundraiser. This year’s Gala honored Norman Y. Mineta the 2012 Lifetime Achievement Award, given to “an individual committed to opportunity and youth leadership.”

This year’s Gala was unusually special because it marked 50,000 alumni, a staggering number of college students who have found internship placements in Washington D.C. through The Washington Center. We are so blessed to have the means to participate and send students to Washington, helping build the network of Christian leaders in our Nation’s Capitol.

Below are several pictures from the Gala and the TWC Gala video. In the video (at 2:04) you can see TWC alum and recent LCU graduate, Diana Eid!
