Matt Receives Award for Senator Bob Dole



On Friday, May 2, 2008, Matt was honored to receive the Bob Dole Humanitarian Award for Service to the Disability Community for Senator Dole who is the first recipient of this award presented by the Special Education Department of the University of Kansas on the occasion of the department's 50th Anniversary.
Matt was asked by Senator Dole to accept the award for him because he was unable to attend the Gala. The university brought Matt and his friend and fellow soldier, James Orlowski, to Lawrence for the presentation.
