Message: Commemorating the 50th Anniversary of the White House Fellows

  1. 1. October 1, 2014 I am pleased to join in commemorating the 50th anniversary of the President’s Commission on White House Fellowships. On October 3, 1964, President Lyndon B. Johnson established the President’s Commission on White House Fellowships through Executive order. Guided by the understanding that a genuinely free society requires robust participation from its citizens, President Johnson created this program to forge new opportunities for young Americans in Government. In the 50 years since, this prestigious program has welcomed talented, engaged women and men to the Federal Government as White House Fellows each year. Through their service, White House Fellows have gained valuable first-hand experience and a richer perspective on issues defining the times. Many have gone on to shape important debates and make tremendous contributions throughout our society—from the public sector to business and academia. This program continues to speak to what is possible when we set aside personal ambition in pursuit of the common good, and it offers a reminder that those who love their country can change it. As we mark this special milestone, I thank all those who have served as White House Fellows for dedicating their passion and energy to strengthening the fabric of America. I wish you the very best and look forward to decades to come for this cherished program. b
