Secretary LaHood was one of the founding members of EW!DC and in 1995 helped champion one of our first Power Lunch programs, which served 100 students at Tyler Elementary School on Capitol Hill. Secretary LaHood upheld his commitment to the program by serving as a Reading Mentor at that same school for 13 consecutive years.
