Plaskett Among Honorees At Alma Mater Ceremony

News / Virgin Islands / January 11, 2015

Delegate to Congress Stacey Plaskett was honored by American University’s Washington College of Law (AUWCL) for being one of two alumnae elected to the 114th Congress.

In receiving the honor, Plaskett said she was proud for being recognized, and was especially thankful that it was in the field of public service, joining countless others who’ve taken up the challenge to serve their people.

“It’s great to be back after so many years, and to be among so many great public servants,” Plaskett remarked.

Plaskett also reminisced on her days as a young mother and law student at the University, and encouraged current students not to settle for the status quo and to be relentless in pursuit of their goals.

Following her remarks, the Delegate exchanged tokens of appreciation with AUWCL’s Dean Claudio Grossman and Professor Jamie Raskin, and held conversations with current students.

The Congresswoman and her colleague Rep. Gwen Graham (D-FL), and several Delegates from both the Maryland and Virginia House of Delegates, were honored at the ceremony.

I wear many hats, I suppose, but the one which fits me best would be journalism, second to that would be radio personality, thirdly singer/songwriter and down the line. I've been the Editor-In-Chief at my videogames website, Gamesthirst, for over 5 years, writing over 7,000 articles and more than 2 million words. I'm also very passionate about where I live, the United States Virgin Islands, and I'm intent on making it a better place by being resourceful and keeping our leaders honest. VI Consortium was birthed out of said desire, hopefully my efforts bear fruit. Reach me at [email protected]
