SEQUIM — The International City/County Management Association has announced that Sequim City Manager Charlie Bush is the recipient of a full tuition scholarship to attend the Harvard Senior Executive program in July.

The three-week program is designed to “challenge conventional thinking, thought processes and the values that drive leadership decisions,” according to a news release.

Bush is one of two 2018 recipients of the $16,000 tuition scholarship awarded by association. He will cover his own travel expenses to attend the program, city officials noted.

Qualifications for the scholarship include at least three years of membership in association; senior executive experience by serving as a city, county, or town manager or assistant; commitment to the local government profession; and demonstrated exemplary leadership and service to local government.
