EEI President Tom Kuhn Honored for Decades of Service to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society
WASHINGTON (September 11, 2014) – Edison Electric Institute (EEI) President Tom Kuhn was honored Wednesday night by the National Multiple Sclerosis Society (NMSS) during the 36th Annual Ambassadors Ball in Washington, D.C. for his decades of service to NMSS and the National Capital Chapter.

“I am humbled to receive this honor from the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, which is a tremendous organization dedicated to the research and treatment of MS,” said Kuhn. “Through the great work of so many individuals involved in this effort, incredible strides are being made in research and treatment that are having a real impact on people’s lives.”

Kuhn began working with the NMSS in the 1980s. Since first becoming involved, he has served as a board member and chairman of NMSS and the National Capital Chapter. He currently serves as chairman-emeritus and as a board trustee to the National Capital Chapter.

The Ambassadors Ball was expected to raise about $1 million for the research and support of those affected by MS. Since its inception, the Ball has raised more than $18 million. MS affects thousands of individuals in the Washington, D.C. area, more than 400,000 people in the U.S., and 2.5 million worldwide.
