PMI honored Teresa Newton-Terres with the PMI Community Advancement Through Project Management Award
2008. Ms. Newton-Terres was recognized at the PMI Global Congress, in
Denver, Colorado, October 18, 2008. Her efforts contributed

self-reliant and responsibility interdependent to navigate the challenges of
military life. As the Program Champion, Ms. Newton-Terres, development a family program
that would support 460 PEC employees (military and civilian) and over 22,000
yearly attendees from 54 states, territories and Washington D.C. "It
