U.S. Senator Mike Enzi of Wyoming received the National Head Start Association’s highest congressional award on Tuesday for his career-long dedication to supporting children and families. The lifetime achievement award that Enzi received, recognizes members of Congress who have demonstrated a steadfast commitment to Head Start, and to serving our nation's most vulnerable children and their families.

In a news release issued by the Senator’s office, Enzi said that he’s deeply touched by the recognition and that he wants to ensure that all children are better prepared, not only for success in in school, but also for success later in life. According to Head Start, Senator Enzi received the award due to his leadership in the re-authorization of Head Start with the Improving Head Start for School Readiness Act of 2007.
