On Thursday, Governor Phil Bryant was presented the Salvation Army's "Others" award for his selfless work with the Salvation Army in Mississippi.
The identity of the Others Award recipients is closely guarded until it is presented every year. Gov. Bryant was the guest speaker at The Salvation Army National Advisory Board Empowerment Breakfast and had no idea he was being presented the award following his speech.
For years, the Others Award has been presented across the nation to honor an individual or organization that exemplifies an extraordinary spirit of service to others in their community.
