Congratulations to the 2007 recipients of the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award.
Hard work, innovation, and the entrepreneurial spirit reflect the values that make our country strong. Twenty years ago, the Baldrige Award was established to honor American organizations that demonstrate a strong commitment to quality and performance excellence. This year's Baldrige Award recognizes business, health care, and nonprofit organizations for their leadership and management and their focus on putting people first.
I appreciate honorees for your dedication to excellence and contributions to America's competitive strength. Your efforts reflect the best of our Nation and help build a more prosperous future for our country.
Laura and I send our best wishes.
George W. Bush
