Stellar Solutions Founder and Board Chair Celeste Ford was named a recipient of the 2021 E. David Spong Lifetime Achievement Award by the Foundation for the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award. This honor “recognizes individuals who have performed truly extraordinary service, changed their world, and inspired others to do the same,” according to the Foundation’s press release.

The U.S. Secretary of Commerce announced the selection of Stellar Solutions for the Baldrige Award in 2017. The company received the nation’s highest honor for performance excellence and sustainability as a result of Ford’s committed leadership and advocacy. 

“Celeste Ford embodies Baldrige leadership values and principles, and has provided outstanding service to the Baldrige community and beyond,” said Al Faber, President and CEO of the Foundation. The Leadership Awards will be presented at an awards event as part of the Quest for Excellence conference in April.
