Dear GW-CEPL Alumni and Friends:

We are proud to share that GW-CEPL's program alumni and affiliates were recognized at this year's prestigious Presidential Rank Awards.

Our congratulations go out to Michael Frueh from the Department of Veterans Affairs, Keith Washington from the Department of Transportation , and Dr. Nancy Potok from the U.S. Census Bureau !

The awards recognize the extraordinary public service of senior-level professionals in the federal government. According to the Senior Executives Association, the 36 winners of the annual Distinguished Rank Awards collectively saved taxpayers an estimated $650 billion last year, while the average “positive economic benefit/efficiency per project headed by a 2017 Distinguished PRA recipient is $9.16 billion.”
