INSA and the Intelligence and National Security Foundation (INSF) have partnered with the Ridge College of Intelligence Studies and Applied Sciences at Mercyhurst University, to create the first Intelligence Community Hall of Fame, which will be housed on the university's campus in Erie, PA.
The plans for this exciting project were announced on Tuesday, February 25, at the National Press Club as part of a kickoff event that included Gov. Tom Ridge, former Secretary of Homeland Security and INSA/INSF Chairman Tish Long; and five past William Oliver Baker Award recipients—the Hon. James Clapper, the Hon. Michael V. Hayden, the Hon. Richard J. Kerr, the Hon. Arthur Money, and Adm. Bill Studeman.
The Hall of Fame will honor recipients of the William Oliver Baker Award, an award presented by INSA to an extraordinary individual for their sustained contributions to excellence in intelligence and national security affairs. We look forward to the completion of this project and to seeing the impact it will have on the future leaders of the intelligence community! View event photos on our Flickr page.
