MITCHELLVILLE, MD – Congressman Steny H. Hoyer (MD-5) tonight received the Prince George's County Social Innovation Fund’s (PGCSIF) “Wayne K. Curry Forever 41” Award. The award recognizes a Prince George’s County leader, over the age of 40, who goes above and beyond the call of duty to develop next generational leadership. The “Forever 41” Award was renamed in honor of former Prince George’s County Executive Wayne Curry. The award presentation was held during PGCSIF’s 2016 Forty UNDER 40 Awards Ceremony.
“I was honored and humbled to receive this award from the Prince George’s County Social Innovation Fund,” said Congressman Steny Hoyer. “All of the Forty UNDER 40 young leaders tonight have asked themselves what they can do for Prince George’s County, its communities, and its future. They are extraordinary young people who are improving lives and strengthening our communities, and for that we are grateful. I’m proud to be working alongside other federal, state, and local officials in Maryland and Prince George’s County to foster a new generation of leaders here who are smart, driven, and innovative.”
“It is very fitting that this award is being renamed for former Prince George’s County Executive Wayne Curry, who had a vision for the county that was innovative and called for a new generation to step up and lead,” continued Congressman Hoyer. “As we remember him, let us strive to continue building new opportunities for Prince Georgians and making the County a great place to live and invest. Thank you, and congratulations again to all of tonight’s honorees.”
