The William H. Kushnick award was established in 1968 in honor of Mr. William H. Kushnick, one of the most highly respected and distinguished members of the Army Civilian Personnel Community. This award annually recognizes the most outstanding singular achievement of an Army employee in Civilian Human Resources and is used to encourage greater achievement among all employees in the career field.
This award recognizes demonstrated excellence in the leadership of civilians and accomplishment of the mission through the civilian work force
. It exemplifies both the highest traditions established by Mr. John W. Macy, Jr., during his long and distinguished career of public service and the Army's philosophy that leaders are responsible for civilian human resource management. Mission accomplishment at every level of organized activity requires effective leadership. While the leader's qualities are often the focus of attention, the excellence of the team's mission performance, the growth of team members and the esprit of the team are major indicators of leader effectiveness. This recognition is intended to identify and to recognize role models whose teams set the standard for other leaders of our soldier-civilian team.
Named after former Secretary of the Army Frank Pace, this award has been presented annually since 1962 to one Army officer,

Department of the Army. Awardees are selected based on their performance and completion of significant staff assignments
that benefit the Army by providing substantial financial savings, or technological or military development.
