Rewarded for Excellence

The John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation (known by many as sponsors of National Public Radio) recently named 25 new MacArthur Fellows for 2005.

Each received a phone call from the Foundation informing them that they will be given $500,000 in “no strings attached” support over the next five years.

MacArthur Fellows are selected for their creativity, originality, and potential.

Some of the recipients this year included:

  • a molecular biologist
  • a sculptor
  • a pharmacist
  • a laser physicist
  • a violinmaker
  • a photographer
  • a fisherman

BOTTOMLINE: Achieving excellence - whether in business or any other area of life, is a long-term process, and should be recognized. Isn't it great to see examples of those doing work worthy of such high praise?
