The David Pike Award

David PikeStreet Sense conveys the David Pike Award in the memory of former volunteer and board member, David Pike. David was a journalist for four decades, working with publications such as U.S. News & World Report and The Washington Star. David’s energy, compassion and dedication are missed.
