National Sea Grant Director Wins Presidential Rank Award

Ronald Baird, director of the National Sea Grant College Program, recently received a Presidential Rank Award for his accomplishments in helping position the United States as a world leader in marine research and the sustainable development of coastal resources.

“Throughout his career, Ron has compiled a distinctive record of outstanding accomplishments,” said D. James Baker, NOAA administrator. “This is a fitting recognition of the work he has done and the major innovations he continues to bring to Sea Grant and NOAA as a whole.”

The Presidential Rank Award recognizes a small group of career senior executives. Winners are selected for their ability to deliver great service, foster partnerships and community solutions to achieve results, and continuously strive to work efficiently and effectively.
