Cambridge, MA – Caroline Kennedy will present the eighth annual John F. Kennedy New Frontier Award on Nov. 21 to Luke Ravenstahl, Mayor of Pittsburgh, PA, and Jennifer Staple-Clark, Founder and Chief Executive Officer, Unite for Sight.
The ceremony will take place at 6 p.m. at the John F. Kennedy Jr. Forum at Harvard University’s Institute of Politics (IOP) at the John F. Kennedy School of Government.
The John F. Kennedy New Frontier Awards were created by the John F. Kennedy Library Foundation and the IOP to honor Americans under the age of 40 who are changing their communities and the country with their commitment to public service. The awards are presented annually to two exceptional individuals whose contributions in elective office, community service, or advocacy demonstrate the impact and the value of public service in the spirit of John F. Kennedy.
Caroline Kennedy, President of the John F. Kennedy Library Foundation and Chair of the IOP’s Senior Advisory Committee, will present Ravenstahl and Staple-Clark each with a ship’s navigational compass in a wooden box bearing the inscription: “We stand today on the edge of a New Frontier…. I believe the times demand new invention, innovation, imagination, decision. I am asking each of you to be pioneers on that New Frontier.” – John F. Kennedy
