Magazine, Society Laud LDS September 11th Victim

WASHINGTON, DC -- Brady Kay Howell was recently honored in a speech delivered at the American Society for Public Administration's Northern Virginia chapter, who as a Presidential Management Intern, was killed during the attack on the Pentagon on Sept. 11. Howell lived a life of faith and achievement that included service to God and his country.

Brady was honored by his wife, Elizabeth Anderson Howell, who spoke of her husband as a shining example of a highly motivated young man who was one of the 344-member PMI class of 2000. Howell's life was one of service. He served a two-year mission in the Canary Islands for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He was a Cub Scout leader and and Sunday School teacher and wore his clearance badges around his neck with pride and joy.

He came to Washington after graduating from Syracuse University's highly rated Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs where he earned a master's degree in public education. He won a coveted spot in the Navy's PMI program and worked as the first Presidential Management Intern assigned to the Director of Naval Intelligence Staff. He began training as a watch officer for the CNO Intelligence Plot and received his top-secret clearance just weeks before his death.

The ASAP's Northern Virginia chapter instituted a $500 scholarship in Brady Howell's name that was awarded by his wife. The loss of Brady Kay Howell will be felt most assuredly by his family, but he will be greatly missed in the ranks of government service that desperately need young men and women like Brady Howell.

Recent polling shows a considerable more benign public view of government in the wake of Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. There are indications of low levels of interest in joining the ranks of government among young people. Recent articles in issues of Government Executive make clear the challenges that are confronting the government as it responds to the urgent tasks of homeland security.

At a national Academy of Sciences meeting last month, former Undersecretary of Energy Ernest Moniz said, "Greater efforts to communicate the interest and excitement of the kinds of assignments offered to Brady Howell, are the sorts of steps we need to help revive interest in working for government."
