On behalf of AARP Kentucky State Director Ron Bridges, State President Charlotte Whittaker (Hartford) presented the ‘Champion of the 50+’ Life-time Award to Senator Embry during a live virtual event with AARP volunteers and local constituents.

His leadership and support of legislation reflected a bipartisan and balanced, pragmatic approach to helping older Kentuckians live longer with independence and dignity in their homes and communities.
