Nominations sought for Glenn L. Jackson Leadership Award

Willamette University’s Atkinson Graduate School of Management invites nominations for its annual Glenn L. Jackson Leadership Award.

The Glenn L. Jackson Leadership Award was created by the Atkinson Graduate School of Management at Willamette University in 1984 to recognize extraordinary entrepreneurial and civic leadership benefiting the State of Oregon.  The Award seeks to recognize public and private leadership in the tradition of the late Glenn L. Jackson, a true Oregonian, who served as Chairman of Pacific Power and Light (now, PacifiCorp), Chairman of the Oregon Transportation Commission and owner of several entrepreneurial enterprises.  Glenn Jackson believed in making the right thing happen for Oregon and had the capacity and drive to get things done.  He serves as a civic leadership model for all Oregonians.
