Through 40 years of involvement in community and church service, Rev. Daughtry has earned the title "The People's Pastor".
Among the numerous citations and awards he has received are honorary doctorate degrees from Seton Hall University (1980) and the State University of New York, College of Old Westbury (1992). Additionally, he has received citations and Resolutions from the US Congress and New York State Legislature honoring him for his many years of service to humanity.
