Message from the Chief of Public Affairs
I’m honored to announce the winners of the 2012 MG Keith L. Ware Public Affairs Competition. Please join me in congratulating our winning Soldiers and civilians. We have an impressive level of talent in our public affairs community, evident by the quality of the 588 total individual entries submitted this year. Their outstanding efforts helped their commanders and supervisors tell the Army story. I especially want to recognize this year’s recipient of the SGM Dawn Kilpatrick Memorial AUSA Scholarship - SFC Adam Shaw. This is the first year the scholarship was part of the KLW competition and first year that it was open to all three Army components. Allow me also express my gratitude to the distinguished leaders, PA alumni, broadcasters, Defense Information School cadre, reporters and academicians who served as judges. Your tireless efforts contributed enormously to the KLW program and our PA heritage. I look forward to a seeing our public affairs professionals excel during this year’s Thomas Jefferson Competition. Good luck! Army Strong!
