Brandon at National Service Awards

Yesterday, Brandon was one of many guests to attend the "Voices for National Service and The Corps Network Honor America's Friends of National Service." The event honors volunteerism and those who fund volunteer organizations. You may recall Brandon joined ServiceNation several years ago to donate his time for charitable causes.

Brandon, an Iowan native, was there to award Iowan Senator Tom Harkin (D-IA) the Edward M. Kennedy National Service Lifetime Leadership Award for his support of increasing the federal investment in national service programs and for supporting policy changes that have strengthened these programs for years to come.

Harkin: "As Congress continues to debate the budget, it is important that we not lose sight and eliminate these critical programs that are helping so many people. And it was doubly an honor to receive this award from Brandon Routh. He is someone I am proud to call a fellow Iowan – he plays a great Superman, but he also makes a great everyman and I have the greatest respect for his sustained advocacy for national service programs in recent years."

In related news, Brandon spoke with Washington's The Hill about why he enjoys caucusing.
