Orrin Hudson, founder of the Be Someone foundation, was honored Tuesday in Atlanta by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
Acting Special Agent in Charge Ricky Maxwell, FBI Atlanta, presented the Director's Award for Community Leadership for 2013 to Hudson for "his exceptional insight and success in reaching disadvantaged youth in the metropolitan Atlanta area through the game of chess."
In April, FBI Director James B. Comey will host all of the FBI's 56 selectees from around the country at a national ceremony to be held at FBI Headquarters in the District of Columbia.
Hudson will be present as Atlanta FBI's honoree. The former Alabama police officer founded Be Someone, which uses various learning skills, including chess to promote self-esteem, responsibility and analytical thinking to underprivileged youths.
