2008 Director’s Community Leadership Awards

Cleveland Beverly A. Goldstein
Beachwood Schools Foundation
Director Mueller and Beverly A. Goldstein

Beverly A. Goldstein, whose husband is a retired intelligence officer, became interested in national security issues after attending an AFIO conference at FBI Headquarters with her husband. She returned home and began working with the Beachwood Schools Foundation and school officials, developing a full-day symposium for high school students, featuring 15 speakers from the CIA Defense Intelligence Agency, the National Security Agency, the Central Intelligence Agency, the FBI, the Department of Homeland Security, and the Drug Enforcement Agency. The program consisted of lectures, break-out sessions, and a dinner where the SAC for the Cleveland FBI, Frank Figliuzzi was the keynote speaker. Beverly Goldstein wants teenagers to think about our national security and possible national security careers.

Beverly Goldstein is committed to replicating this symposium in other schools in the region and the country.

FBI Director Recognizes

In a ceremony at FBI Headquarters, Director Robert S. Mueller, III recognized the recipients of the 2008 Director’s Community Leadership Award. These leaders, selected by their area FBI field office, have demonstrated outstanding contributions to their local communities through service. The FBI is grateful for the work of each of these individuals and organizations on behalf of their communities.

“Whatever the motivation—an unfilled need, a tragic occurrence, a desire to give back—these are people who make things happen and enlist others in their cause,” said Director Mueller. “They are activists who have earned their prestige through good works.”
