Message from President Bush to 2006 recipients of the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award

Congratulations to the 2006 recipients of the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award.

The American economy is robust and growing because of the hard work and innovation of the American people. For nearly two decades, the Baldrige Award has helped to make quality improvement a national priority and raised awareness about the importance of high standards in the workplace. This year's awards are an opportunity to honor extraordinary achievement and learn more about new strategies to advance our Nation's businesses and education and health care organizations.

I appreciate honorees for your commitment to principled leadership and innovative solutions. Your efforts help ensure that our hardworking men and women realize their full potential and that America remains the economic leader of the world. 

Laura and I send our best wishes.

George W. Bush
