Mr. Gosset receives Legacy Award from US Dream Academy

May 21st, 2009

The U.S. Dream Academy tonight held its 8th annual Power of a Dream Gala, which raised over $600,000 for its nationally-recognized nonprofit afterschool and mentoring program.

Gala co-chairs U.S. Senators John Ensign (R-NV) and Mark L. Pryor (D-AR), along with Congresswomen Maxine Waters (D-CA), Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX), and Diane Watson (D-CA), and former Secretary of Defense William Cohen and his wife Janet Langhart Cohen were among the 500 attendees who joined U.S. Dream Academy CEO Wintley Phipps to honor three individuals who have shown by example the positive results of following your dreams and serving as role models for at-risk youth.

Mr. Gossett received the prestigious 2009 Legacy Award for his work with the Eracism Foundation. Previous honorees had included former Pres. Bill Clinton, Cicely Tyson and Neurosurgeon Dr. Benjamin Carson.

DC native Taraji P. Henson was presented with the 2009 President’s Award, and LDS Business College dean of academic outreach Keith Poelman was honored as 2009 Mentor of the Year for his volunteer service at the Dream Academy Learning Center in Salt Lake City, UT.

    Lou, please talk to Dr. Ben Carson, who also received the Legacy Award, about your prostate cancer. He had the same problem and as head of the pediatric neurosurgery dept. at Johns Hopkins he had access to the very best treatments in the world. Ask him what he did and you will be amazed. Think nutritional support. Ask him please, don’t let them torture you, you’re too old for that.
