Charles McC. Mathias, former U.S. senator from Maryland, received the Howard Seidman Award for Distinguished Service to Johns Hopkins from the Krieger School of Arts and Sciences during the Johns Hopkins Convocation in Washington, D.C., in November.

An Evening With the Stars, a benefit co-sponsored by the Johns Hopkins Center for American Indian and Alaskan Native Health, brought out more than 20 NFL players and raised over $40,000 toward the expansion of Native Vision, a year-round, community-based mentoring program for Indian youth. The event was held in November in Washington, D.C. The center's partners include the NFL Players Association and the Nick Lowery Charitable Foundation. The third annual football and life skills camp is slated for June on the Wind River Reservation in Wyoming, when the year-round program will be officially launched; more than 300 youths from 25 tribes are expected to attend.
