Summitt honored with leadership award

Tennessee coach Pat Summitt has picked up another award, this from the Alliance of Women Philanthropists.

Summitt received the award Saturday at the group's annual Women and Philanthropy Symposium in Knoxville, and she becomes only the second person to be given the Brenda G. Lawson Legacy of Leadership Award. Lawson is a board member of the Alliance Executive Board and received the award first.

The coach says it's an honor to receive an award named for a successful and compassionate business leader.

The award was created to recognize women who go above and beyond the call of duty helping others at the University of Tennessee.
