Congratulations Leslye Arsht!

Good Housekeeping magazine has named Leslye Arsht the grand prize winner of its Award for Women in Government. Arsht, who now works at the Pentagon, is the founder of StandardsWork.

After the end of the second war in Iraq she volunteered to go to the country for a year to help rebuild the elementary and secondary education system there. The effort has been one of the real successes of the post-war period in no small part because of Arsht’s tireless efforts and willingness to travel all over the country to work with local Iraqis to help rebuild the schools (figuratively and often literally, too).
