       In recognition of Charlie Smith Day, June 3, 2001:
                               
This certificate of recognition is presented in honor of Charlie Smith, who committed his adult life to advancing the civil rights of people with disabilities; who founded Access Press, a newspaper by and for people with disabilities; and who lived by example, with integrity, quiet power, and humor, with the appreciation and respect of the people of Minnesota.
                               
I have hereunto set my hand and caused the Great Seal of the State of Minnesota to be affixed at the Capitol in the City of St. Paul, June 3, 2001.
