Clinton to receive memorial award
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Former President Bill Clinton has been
chosen as the recipient of the sixth annual Reflections of Hope
Award from the Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum.
Clinton will receive the award Wednesday night at the National
Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum.
Clinton was president when a terrorist bomb destroyed the
Oklahoma City federal building 15 years ago, killing 168 people and
injuring hundreds more.
He is being honored for his work in helping Oklahoma City
transform following the bombing and for his international peace
work during his presidency and over the past decade.
Clinton is founder of the William J. Clinton Foundation, whose
mission is to strengthen the capacity of people in the U.S. and
around the world to meet the challenges of global interdependence.
