In 1971, Elvis received what became his proudest achievement when he was named among the Jaycees Ten Outstanding Young Men. Elvis fan and Memphis native Beau Davidson recently stopped by Graceland to place his own Ten Outstanding Young Americans award directly beside his idol's.

Scientists, inventors, performers, film makers, politicians bound for the Presidency, and men of greatness in all fields, have been selected for this award over the years. Davidson was honored for his accomplishments in the entertainment and political arenas, including his appointment to The Young Americans Coalition.

For Elvis, who grew up poor and faced extreme criticism, this was one of his proudest moments. He had finally achieved acceptance, recognition, and respect for his work. Elvis was known to carry his Jaycees award around with him everywhere and this is the only award for which he accepted in person.
