CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) - Former U.S. Sen. and Secretary of the Navy Jim Webb is among this year’s recipients of the Thomas Jefferson Foundation Medals.

The other recipients are Tokyo-based architect Toyo Ito and attorney Kenneth R. Feinberg.

The foundation medals in architecture, law and citizen leadership are jointly sponsored by the foundation and the University of Virginia. They are the highest external honors given by U.Va.

The foundation says the awards will be presented during the university’s Founder’s Day activities in April.

The nonprofit foundation owns and operates Jefferson’s home, Monticello.
