President Juan Manuel Santos became the first Colombian to win the coveted Woodrow Wilson Award for Public Services, the Wilson Center announced on Wednesday.

"Throughout his life, President Santos has been committed to public service by fostering democracy, security and peace in Colombia," stated the center's director Jane Harman in an official press release.

The Wilson Center describes their award for public services as an award that "is presented to individuals who have poured their time, talents, and resources into improving the lives and futures of others and in so doing have inspired us all."

Santos has now become the third Latin American recipient of the award, after Brazilian Presidents Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva and Dilma Rousseff.

1. 5...4...3...2...1...

countdown to arrival of the Colombia denigrators 'opining' on this award. Because, as we all know, nothing good or of value ever comes out of Colombia. We'll probably hear why Chavez should have won the award.

2. even the denigrators would have to admit coffee, Shakira, and Sofia Vergara are all good

Chavez did win the Moamar Gadafi Human Rights award so thats a pretty prestigious honor.
