CHARLESTON, S.C., Nov. 21, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — In an effort to increase their reach to students, educators and veterans and the involvement of the 69 living recipients of the Medal of Honor in the delivery, The Congressional Medal of Honor Society and Foundation today announced transformational operational changes that include new platforms to deliver educational programs virtually, streamlined operations, and launched a new interactive website (www.cmohs.org) that will better serve their members, supporters and donors.
During this year of drastic changes and disruptions in the corporate and nonprofit sectors, the Society and Foundation have worked diligently to make necessary and positive changes to their operational dynamics that strengthen their focus to educate, connect, inspire, preserve, and support.
