FBI Jacksonville has selected Mrs. Michelle Clowe for the 2013 Director’s Community Leadership Award (DCLA) for her notable service, leadership, and significant contributions to the communities of Northeast Florida.

As the reception and placement coordinator for World Relief Jacksonville, Mrs. Clowe works to provide refugees with services such as initial housing needs, English classes, and initial medical care and immunizations. She partners with community volunteers and churches to help offer refugees an introduction to American culture.
Mrs. Clowe serves as co-chair for the Northeast Florida Human Trafficking Coalition, holding monthly meetings to collaborate and discuss issues surrounding victims of human trafficking as well as refugees who are resettling in Florida. During National Human Trafficking Awareness Month, she helped organize and manage events to raise awareness on current issues, statistics, indicators, and cases involving human trafficking.
As a recipient of the DCLA, Mrs. Clowe will join other honorees around the nation for a ceremony at FBI Headquarters in Washington, D.C, where she will be presented the award by FBI Director James Comey.
The FBI salutes Mrs. Michelle Clowe for the positive impact she has made and continues to make on communities in Northeast Florida.
