PHIL HART SCHOLARS – This year's class of Lake Superior State University Philip A. Hart Scholars garner recognition during a morning breakfast before commencement on April 28 in Sault Ste.

For Senator Hart, politics was also the noble art of governing, and governing was about building a better future for our children and our children's children. He earned the title of "conscience of the Senate" from colleagues due to the way he conducted politics.
