Last month, at the annual Kennedy-King Dinner, the Hillsborough County Democratic Executive Committee honored Senator Arthenia Joyner (D-Tampa) with the Helen Gordon Davis Lifetime Achievement Award.
This honor recognizes Senator Joyner’s lifetime commitment to helping the people of Florida through her various actions in civil rights movements and other leadership abilities. She realizes the importance of this recognition as it embodies Helen Gordon Davis’ spirit and cause.
