Gov. Dannel P. Malloy was honored Sunday with the Profile in Courage Award at the JFK Library and Museum in Boston for his welcoming Syrian refugees who had been rejected by Indiana.
Gov. Dannel P. Malloy will be awarded the John F. Kennedy Profile in Courage Award for his decision to welcome a Syrian refugee family to Connecticut after the governor of Indiana opposed a plan to relocate them to his state. The same honor went to a predecessor, Lowell P. Weicker Jr., in 1992.
