The late Jack Kemp is the most recent conservative icon to be honored with Heritage’s prestigious Clare Boothe Luce Award. A former member of Congress, Cabinet secretary, and candidate for vice president, Kemp was one of the conservative movement’s most innovative and inspiring political figures for decades.

The award, the highest honor bestowed by Heritage, was presented Tuesday at the 2018 Kemp Leadership Award Dinner. Kemp’s widow, Joanne, accepted the award in his name.

“My father was so proud of his role at the birth of The Heritage Foundation, and our family is honored to receive this award on his behalf,” said Jimmy Kemp, president of the Jack Kemp Foundation.

Heritage reserves the Clare Boothe Luce Award for the most dedicated conservatives, including President Ronald Reagan, Lady Margaret Thatcher, Sen. Jesse Helms, Attorney General Edwin Meese III, William F. Buckley Jr. and now, Jack Kemp. Thank you for letting us honor the heroes of our movement.

Who do you think the next recipient should be for the Clare Boothe Luce Award?

I consider Congressman Jim Jordan a good candidate. He has led the current fight for conservative principles and values in Congress and has articulated these ideas in many media platforms in recent years. Also, please consider former Heritage president Ed Feulner and Hillsdale College president Larry Arnn.
