The Council for Quality Growth will honor Ambassador Andrew Jackson Young, former Ambassador to the United Nations and Chairman of the Andrew J. Young Foundation, with its 32nd annual Four Pillar Award. Young’s lifelong dedication to service is illustrated by his extensive leadership experience of over sixty-five years serving as a member of Congress, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, Mayor of Atlanta, Civil Rights Leader, and ordained minister, among other positions.
“Ambassador Young has been a champion for education and economic opportunity, not only here in Atlanta, but across the nation and internationally,” said Council for Quality Growth President and CEO Michael Paris. “His lifelong focus on human rights has led to better lives for so many people. He is a shining example of what the Four Pillars stand for.”
Doug Jenkins, the Council’s 2021 Chairman and Georgia Power’s Metro North Region Director also added that, “Ambassador Young not only embodies the Four Pillars of Leadership – he himself is a pillar of Atlanta, our state and this nation. He has given an immeasurable amount of his life to this community and so many others. We are honored to recognize the Ambassador with our Four Pillar Award.”
