Baldrige Winners Named

President George W. Bush and Commerce Secretary Donald L. Evans announced the winners of the 2001 Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award. For the first time since the program's inception in 1987, winners were named in the education category. The 2001 recipients are:

Pal's Sudden Service (Kings-port, TN), small business
Chugach School District (Anchorage, AK), education
