Well Done, Jennifer
The Georgetown-Burleith Advisory Neighborhood Commission commended the past president of the Citizens Association of Georgetown earlier this month. The group recognized Altemus for “sustained contributions to the community,” not the least of which was the agreement between the neighborhood and Georgetown University on its 10-year campus plan. Meanwhile, the student newspaper, the Hoya, disapproved of the gesture. “GU Antagonist Unworthy of ANC Award,” its editorial headline read. All right, then. Regardless, Altemus -- CAG president for four years -- was also honored by the citizens group she led at its annual election meeting, where Ward 2 councilmember Jack Evans, presented Altemus with a proclamation from Mayor Vincent Gray, designating “May 29, 2013, as Jennifer Altemus Day.” Not bad. We know there are other projects to thank her for her, including jazzing up the Georgetown Gala, one of CAG’s big fundraisers.
Enjoy your status as president emerita, Jennifer, for a job very well done.
