DC SCORES Athletic Director Kenny Owens receives Community Leadership Award

A DC SCORES staff member has won yet another award (see the full list).

The President’s Council on Fitness, Sports & Nutrition (PCFSN) has selected DC SCORES Athletic Director Kenny Owens to receive a 2012 PCFSN Community Leadership Award. The award is given annually to individuals who improve the lives of others within their community by providing or enhancing opportunities to engage in sports, physical activities, fitness or nutrition-related programs.

This is the second prestigious award Owens has received in 2012. In March, he was one of 13 recipients nationwide of a ‘Let’s Move and Physical Activity Champion of Change’ award and visited the White House to speak on a panel. For the award, Owens wrote a blog about his passion for youth development through soccer in DC.  

Now, Owens has received another award honoring him for his commitment to the DC community through running the DC SCORES soccer program for over 800 youth. Owens has been the Athletic Director since 2006 and is responsible for overseeing and organizing elementary and middle school soccer leagues each spring and fall and summer camps in addition to training coaches.

“It is our pleasure to present this award to Kenny Owens,” said Shellie Pfohl, executive director of the President’s Council on Fitness, Sports & Nutrition. “Individuals like Kenny are working tirelessly to encourage physical activity and proper nutrition to positively impact the health of their communities. Together we are all working to make our nation a healthier one.”

This year, the President’s Council presented the Community Leadership Award to 47 individuals across the country for making sports, physical activity, fitness and nutrition-related programs available in their communities.
