Louisiana native Ellen DeGeneres to receive Presidential Medal of Freedom

Louisiana native Ellen DeGeneres is one of 21 people set to receive the Presidential Medal of Freedom awarded by President Barack Obama.

“The Presidential Medal of Freedom is not just our nation’s highest civilian honor – it’s a tribute to the idea that all of us, no matter where we come from, have the opportunity to change this country for the better,” Obama said in a statement. “From scientists, philanthropists, and public servants to activists, athletes, and artists, these 21 individuals have helped push America forward, inspiring millions of people around the world along the way.”

DeGeneres was born in Metairie, Louisiana, and has hosted her TV talk show since 2003.
