Ted Kaufman - United States Senator for Delaware

Great Federal Employees Initiative

Honoree for Week of July 7, 2009

John Granville

United States Agency for International Development

Working for the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), John Granville exemplified the value of service above self. While on a mission in the Sudan to distribute hand-operated radio receivers to local villagers, so they could receive news about upcoming democratic elections, John was gunned down by militants. His loved-ones back home remembered him as an “unselfish humanitarian,” a “consummate professional,” and someone who “worked with energy and imagination.”
