“Leidos is among a very special group of organizations who have made a commitment to Cornerstones as Annual Partners, whose sustaining support helps us meet challenges in the community year-round,” said Kerrie Wilson, CEO of Cornerstones.
Cornerstones’ Annual Partners, Best of Reston Sponsors and Capitol Steps Sponsors were also recognized for their commitment to Cornerstones’ mission.
About Cornerstones of Our Community – Best of Reston Awards: Nearly three decades ago, Cornerstones and the Greater Reston Chamber of Commerce came together in a collaboration that demonstrates their mutual commitment to the Reston community’s guiding principles established by founder Robert E. Simon, and a shared philosophy that the collective contributions of individuals, businesses, civic and community institutions and organizations are necessary to build and sustain thriving and enriching communities. This partnership is celebrated each year in a community awards celebration.
