March 1, 2011 |

Holly Burkett, Ph.D., SPHR of Evaluation Works in Davis, recently has returned from Singapore, where she provided technical expertise in curriculum design and program evaluation for faculty with the International Management Development Program of the International Union Against Tuberculosis and Lung Disease (The Union).

The Union is a leader in technical assistance, research and education that promotes lung health in low- and middle-income countries. The Union’s IMDP strengthens health systems by training health professionals in specific competencies that are critical to the success of health programs.

As a Union consultant, Burkett creates learning support and follow-up evaluation processes to help ensure that IMDP participants are able to apply their newly learned management skills when they return to their communities.

With nearly 10,000 members and subscribers from 145 countries, The Union has its headquarters in Paris and regional and country offices serving the Africa, Asia Pacific, Europe, Latin America, Middle East, North America and South-East Asia regions. The Union is most widely known for its internationally recommended Stop TB Strategy, which was adopted by the World Health Organization in 1993 and has been used to treat 32 million people in 202 countries.

Burkett’s consulting firm helps clients align people, programs, and processes with desired organizational goals and learning and performance outcomes.

Meg Arnold and Larry Greene, both of Davis, are among the three winners of Valley Vision’s annual “Legacy of Leadership” awards in the fields of environmental sustainability, social equity and the economy. Arnold won 2011 Regional Economic Leader and Greene won 2011 Regional Environmental Sustainability Leader.

Award nominations were solicited late last year and in early 2011 from businesses, governments, community and nonprofit organizations from across the six-county Capitol Region.

Valley Vision’s 29-member Board of Directors served as the judging panel, reviewing the list of nominees in each of the three categories and casting ballots that led to the final selections.

In addition to receiving a special award at a ceremony during Valley Vision’s “Legacy Feast” event on May 19 at the California History Museum, each winner receives a $3,000 cash grant to bestow to a nonprofit that is providing the next generation of leadership.

Arnold became CEO of SARTA in November 2009, after being closely involved as a SARTA Board member since late 2005. Prior to joining SARTA, she was with UC Davis for six years, supporting technology commercialization and entrepreneurship on the campus, with both UC Davis InnovationAccess and UC Davis CONNECT, where she developed programs to support campus-originated start-up companies, and participated in technology transfer licensing to new start-ups.

Arnold has a master’s degree in finance from the University of San Francisco, and a bachelor’s degree in English from Cornell University.

Greene is the executive director of the Sacramento Metropolitan Air Quality Management District which covers the County of Sacramento. The Air District is governed by an elected board of 14 officials representing the County and City of Sacramento, as well as City Council members from the five incorporated cities within Sacramento County. Greene and the District’s more than 90 employees operate programs daily that reduce air pollution that impact public health, from monitoring, planning, permitting, and compliance with air quality rules and regulations, to reviewing land use projects and public education.

Greene retired as a Lieutenant Colonel in 1995 from a 23 year career in the US Army where he served in the Quartermaster Corps. His numerous assignments included missions in the Middle East, Korea, Europe and Haiti. He has a bachelor’s degree in science education from North Carolina State University and master’s degrees in logistics management from Florida Institute of Technology and education from Boston University.

Alex L. Bailey, a 2010 graduate of Davis High School, was recently awarded the President’s Honors for outstanding academic achievement for Fall 2010 from Sacramento City College.

After receiving his associate degree, Bailey will continue his education at UC Davis. He has not decided on a career path at this point.

Bailey played AYSO soccer for more than 12 years and enjoys playing Xbox games and Airsoft. He volunteered with a class project on a class mural and received the Golden Heart award from the City of Davis. He also worked part-time for Savemart Supermarket.

Bailey was born in Yolo County. He attended Pioneer Elementary School and Holmes Junior High School. His parents, Randy and Elaine Bailey, have lived in Davis since 1965.

His sister is serving in the U.S. Air Force and was stationed in Afghanistan. She currently is in Germany.
