Rachel Brown, senior policy advisor for Native American Affairs, has been selected as one of 60 Presidential Leadership Scholars. A Presidential Leadership Scholar serves as a catalyst for a diverse network of leaders brought together to collaborate and make a difference in the world as they learn about leadership through the lens of the presidential experiences of George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George H.W. Bush, and Lyndon B. Johnson.

“I am humbled and honored to be selected as part of the Presidential Leadership Scholars Program Class of 2020,” said Brown. “I look forward to the program and learning from the distinguished faculty and my fellow scholars. I am excited to bring what I learn back to Reclamation.”

Over the course of six months, scholars will travel to each participating presidential center to learn from former presidents, key former administration officials, business and civic leaders and leading academics. They will study and put into practice varying approaches to leadership and exchange ideas to help strengthen their impact in their communities.

The Presidential Leadership Scholars program is a partnership among the presidential centers of George W. Bush, William J. Clinton, George H.W. Bush, and Lyndon B. Johnson. Scholars put their learning into action through a personal leadership project, which is intended to solve a problem or pressing issue in their community, country or the world. They gain the skills necessary to work across divides and develop a network that spans traditional geographic, professional, political, and economic boundaries.
