2010 Paul Gleason Lead by Example Award Winners

The Paul Gleason Lead by Example Award is presented by the NWCG Leadership Subcommittee to remember Paul Gleason's many contributions to the wildland fire community and recognize individuals or groups that exhibit the same spirit and dedication to leadership...those who lead by example. This national recognition will acknowledge those in the wildland fire service who exemplify the wildland fire leadership values and principles.

On behalf of the NWCG Leadership Subcommittee, I'm proud to announce the 2010 winners of the Paul Gleason Lead by Example Award. This year two individuals and one group received the award:
  • Thomas Taylor - Mt. Baker/Snoqualmie National Forest, US Forest Service
  • Jason Fallon - Colorado Fire Management District, US Fish and Wildlife Service
  • North Zone Fire Management, Black Hills National Forest, US Forest Service

Additionally, a posthumous award was presented to the family of Budd Moore, former Director of Fire and Aviation for the U.S. Forest Service's Northern Region.

In the coming weeks, we'll showcase the winners and their leadership accomplishments.

If you know someone who you believe is worthy of the award or want more information about the award and past recipients, visit the Wildland Fire Leadership Development website.
