The Lillian Carter Award honors outstanding senior volunteers who have kept alive President John F. Kennedys dream of international service. Miss Lillian, President Jimmy Carters mother, joined the Peace Corps in 1966 at age 68 as a public health volunteer in India. Her commitment to Peace Corps service was an extension of her tireless dedication and support of people and humanitarian organizations at home and abroad. With this award, the Peace Corps recognizes and honors Miss Lillians legacy through volunteer service. Miss Lillians extraordinary life underscored a commitment and wish she shared with her own children that each of them would reach for goals that have meaning for them ...

In addition to acknowledging Miss Lillian and the 2013 award recipient, President Carter will commemorate the over 210,000 American citizens who have dedicated themselves since 1961 to promoting the organizations mission of world peace and friendship.
