re: Army CIO Cites Progress In Farewell To Staff
The Army loses a talented general and a class act in Lt. Gen. Lawrence. A few years back, I was in charge of the GCN Awards - Government Computer News' two-decades old program recognizing the government's most outstanding IT executives. Gen. Lawrence earned our pick for the Defense IT Executive of the Year, which at the time (in 2006) was a bigger deal, before so many other award programs came along.

Gen. Lawrence was suddenly called away to Qatar. But she agreed to accept the award, remotely, via satellite feed (which she helped arrange), at 0300 her time, in a tent -- in front of a bunch of enthusiastic Signal Corps colleagues -- speaking to more than 1,000 government and industry executives packed into a Hilton ballroom in Washington, making one of the most gracious speeches many of us had heard in a long time. The applause was something to witness....and still echoes to this day.
