Congratulations go out to Matthias Baudinet upon his recent award of a fellowship from the Thomas S. Foley Institute. The notice was sent by Richard Elgar of the Thomas S. Foley Institute for Public Policy and Public Service “thanks to the generosity of Alice O. Rice.”
The Thomas S. Foley Institute for Public Policy and Public Service was established at Washington State University in 1995 to honor Speaker Foley’s mor than 30 years of public service to both state and nation as the 57th Speaker of the House of Representatives.
“In a cynical age, I still believe that we must summon people to a vision of public service. For, in the end, this ethic determines more than anything else whether we will have citizens and leaders of honor, judgment, wisdom, and heart. These are the qualities this institute will nurture and advance, helping this nation become what it has always been destined to be, the best hope of a free people to live in an open and just society.”
—The Honorable Thomas S. Foley
