Walter MacDonald, President and Chief Executive Officer of ETS, received an award at the Alzheimer’s New Jersey Gala. This was for his work improving the lives of people who are affected by Alzheimer’s.
Educational Testing Service, or ETS, strives to help advance the quality and equity in education regardless of an individual’s circumstances. They do this by providing fair and valid assessments, research, and related services. ETS has sponsored Alzheimer’s New Jersey’s Walk to Fight Alzheimer’s event for the past 15 years and plan to for 15 more. The Walk to Fight Alzheimer’s encourages people to donate in order to improve the condition of Alzheimer’s patients and their families. In fact, the patients and their families receive 100 percent of the donations.
The last letter of ETS is service, therefore it’s in the employees’ DNA to help others. MacDonald believes in fighting the disease and helping the community. MacDonald is honored to accept the award on behalf of ETS and praises Alzheimer’s New Jersey’s work.
