Remembering the life of former Rep. Ed Pastor

November 28, 2018 (Washington, DC) – The Congressional Award Foundation mourns the loss of former U.S. Representative Ed Pastor and expresses our condolences to family and friends.

Congressman Pastor was the first Hispanic member of Congress elected from Arizona and served for more than two decades in the House of Representatives.

In 2006, The Congressional Award presented Pastor with the Wallop-Howard Leadership Award. The honor recognized his outstanding commitment to improving the lives of our nation’s youth and providing critical support to the Foundation’s outreach.

Lauded as a true public servant and a consummate fighter for civil rights, Pastor’s legacy will have a lasting impact.
