SAN BERNARDINO >> Greg Devereaux, San Bernardino County’s chief executive officer, was elected as a fellow at the National Academy of Public Administration, where he will join a long list of national dignitaries, including former Secretary of State Colin Powell, former Attorney General Dick Thornburg, former Cabinet Secretary Donna Shalala and former U.S. Sen. Richard Lugar.

Chartered by Congress, the academy is an independent, nonprofit and nonpartisan organization established in 1967 to assist government leaders at all levels to build more effective, efficient, accountable and transparent organizations, according to a San Bernardino County news release issued Wednesday.

“This is a great honor and a great opportunity for the entire county organization,” Board of Supervisors Chairman James Ramos said in a statement. “Our CEO being recognized as one of the country’s top local leaders shows the strength and resilience of San Bernardino County.”

Devereaux was nominated to the fellowship by Mark Pisano, academy board member and retired longtime Southern California Association of Governments executive director.
