The Government Hall of Fame awards honor accomplished civil servants who have demonstrated sustained achievement and unparalleled dedication to public service throughout their careers. The Theodore Roosevelt Government Leadership Awards will recognize an exclusive class of federal managers, executives and industry leaders each year for their recent achievements in delivering on government’s promise to serve the American people.

“We are thrilled to have an influential voice like Margaret Brennan join us in recognizing the hard work of those dedicated to the mission of serving the American people,” said Government Executive Media Group CEO Tim Hartman. “In a time when our civil servants deserve ample recognition, Government Executive is humbled by the opportunity to unite with leaders like Margaret to lead that initiative.”
