FBI Agent Honored For Civil Rights Work

WASHINGTON - David W. Welker, Special Agent in Charge of the New Orleans Division of the FBI, has announced that FBI Special Agent (SA) Kelly Bryson was honored in a ceremony held in Washington D.C. for her outstanding supervision and the dedicated hard work by the members on her civil rights squad. SA Bryson served as the FBI New Orleans Division’s civil rights supervisor from 2007 to 2010.

The honors began with a private ceremony in the office of Assistant Attorney General Thomas Perez wherein SA Bryson was presented with a plaque for outstanding contributions to civil rights. The location of this ceremony was particularly noteworthy because it once was the office of former Director of the FBI, J. Edgar Hoover.

The private ceremony was followed by a large Civil Rights Division awards ceremony held in the Robert F. Kennedy Department of Justice building, Great Hall, with opening congratulations by Attorney General Eric Holder. During this ceremony, SA Bryson received a Special Achievement Award in recognition of Meritorious Acts, which was announced by Deputy Assistant Attorney General Roy Austin and presented by Assistant Attorney General Thomas Perez and Acting Chief Robert Moossy.
