Truman Scholarship Foundation’s 40 year history. The Truman Scholar Reception took place on November 16 at Gracie Mansion in New York City in celebration of public service and was hosted by Mayor Bill de Blasio, a 1981 Truman Scholar. In addition to Carter, more than 500 Truman Scholars attended the event in celebration of the Foundation’s 40th Anniversary.
