U.S. Presidents Convey Tributes at Baldrige 25th Anniversary and Award Ceremony

"I'm so pleased to help honor this year's prestigious [Malcolm] Baldrige National Quality Award winners—four organizations that are relentless in their pursuit of a better, brighter future," said President Obama in his videotaped remarks at the award ceremony Monday morning.

"I’ve always said that our free market is the greatest engine of prosperity the world has ever known," said the President. "And that engine is powered by our dreamers, our risk takers, and our innovators."

The President then recognized the role-model work of those four organizations:

  • Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control, Grand Prairie, TX (manufacturing)
  • MESA Products Inc., Tulsa, OK (small business)
  • North Mississippi Health Services, Tupelo, MS (health care)
  • City of Irving, Irving, Texas (nonprofit)
These honorees exhibit the kind of job-creating innovation that’s always kept our economy growing and vibrant and prosperous," said the President


"So congratulations to this year’s award recipients and thanks to all of you for recognizing and promoting excellence and innovation."
