The Hill reports:
First lady Melania Trump on Wednesday received a “Woman of Distinction” award from Palm Beach Atlantic University (PBA), despite pushback from some students and alumni in Florida over the move.
Melania Trump, who changed her primary residence to Palm Beach along with President Trump last year, said she was “grateful” to accept the award. According to the school’s website, the award is given to women “who cherish community and family and want to preserve these ideals for others.”
“As the first lady of the United States, it is a great honor to serve the people of this incredible country,” she said at the university’s annual Women of Distinction luncheon at The Breakers Hotel, where she accepted the award.
