    CHICAGO, Jan. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- President George W. Bush presented the
 President's Volunteer Service Award to Erin Green when she arrived in Chicago,
 Illinois, on Friday, January 6, 2006.  Erin Green is a volunteer with the
 James R. Jordan Boys and Girls Club and Family Life Center and the Daniel
 Murphy Scholarship Foundation.
     Green's volunteer work at the James R. Jordan Boys and Girls Club and
 Family Life Center is focused on their College Bound program, which prepares
 high school students for transition into college.  In addition, Green is the
 fundraising committee chair and associate board member for the Daniel Murphy
 Scholarship Foundation, which provides four-year private high school
 scholarships to economically disadvantaged students.
     Green, age 25, says her volunteer service was inspired by her
 participation in a leadership course offered by Landmark Education, an
 international training and development company that in 2002 was recognized as
 one of the top leadership and development training program providers by
 HR.com/James McNeil.  "I became present to what I'm committed to in life,
 which is that African American women know themselves as loved and powerful,"
 says Green. "And out of creating that, I started volunteering and helping to
 prepare young African American women for the transition to college.  In
 Landmark Education programs, I realized that one person really can make a
 difference."
     Dr. Nancy Zapolski, Vice President of Landmark Education's Program
 Delivery Division, said, "It is no surprise that President Bush would want to
 recognize Erin Green, as she is the embodiment of true leadership.  We are
 totally inspired by who Erin Green is and the contribution she makes to
 people. Landmark Education is committed to the fundamental principle that
 people have the possibility of success, fulfillment, and greatness, and Ms.
 Green is a stand for that principle in all her work."
     Landmark Education offers programs that allow people to produce concrete
 results in their effectiveness, impacting those areas of their lives that are
 most important to them, including career, relationships, productivity, and
 contributing to others. Over the last 14 years, in Landmark's Self-Expression
 and Leadership Program, one of the 40 programs offered by Landmark, more than
 30,000 community projects have been created worldwide.
     Since March 2002, President Bush has met with more than 450 individuals
 around the country. Green, and each of these individuals, have been exemplary
 community-service volunteers, and had the opportunity to be personally thanked
 by the President for making a difference in the lives of others.
