Army graduates tech workers

Army officials announced that they graduated 12 people last month as part of the service's new Army Knowledge Leaders Program.

The two-year course includes four rounds of leadership and information technology training at key Army locations. Service officials chose the people from a nationwide group of college graduates who obtained grade-point averages of 3.45 or higher.

"The Army Knowledge Leaders Program is changing the paradigm on how the Army develops IT management professionals. We are cultivating a new cadre who demonstrate leadership, business acumen, management skills, knowledge sharing, peer relationships, and a strong commitment to public service," said Lt. Gen. Steven W. Boutelle, the Army chief information officer/G-6, in a March 1 service statement.

The graduates include Daniel Batelka, Joel Cassell, Patricia Henderson, Sheila Houston, Jerry Russell Jr., Tara Sullivan, Hortense Frank, Lee James III, Zachary Lindsay, Loan Nguyen, Anabel Rosado and Sze-Ka Yeung. They now hold civil-service positions in the Army's information technology field.

Army officials now need 12 to 15 people for the program's class of 2005, starting in September. For more information, e-mail Edward Fujimoto at [email protected] or call him at (703) 604-2059.
