  • Donna Shalala and Roger Berkowitz to each receive the “Jack Valenti Friend of the White House Fellows Award”

    We are extremely pleased to announce that this year we will be presenting the Jack Valenti Friend of the White House Fellows Award to both Congresswoman Donna Shalala, for her 8 years as a principal to White House Fellows serving at HHS, and to Mr. Roger Berkowitz, the President and CEO of Legal Sea Foods, for his 18 years of support to the White House Fellows Boston Regional Panel.

    Our Foundation presents the Valenti award to outstanding supporters of the program, who are not themselves former Fellows, for their efforts to enhance the reputation and visibility of the White House Fellows program. Past recipients of this award include: David Rockefeller, Bill Moyers, Joan Klein, Tenley Albright, Susan Eisenhower, John Phillips, the Lyndon Baines Johnson Family, Michelle Obama, Charles Bolden, and Jack Watson.

    We will present the Valenti award to Congresswoman Shalala at our upcoming Annual Leadership Conference: October 17-19, 2019.

    We will present the Valenti award to Mr. Berkowitz during our Regional Conference at the Ronald Regan Presidential Library: April 23-24, 2020.

    I hope you will be able to join us in Washington D.C. this fall, and in Simi Valley California next spring, when we present these awards to these two exceptional supporters of the White House Fellows program.
