McAl­lis­ter se­lected for Her­itage Award for Men­tor­ing

To fur­ther com­mem­o­rate the ac­tiv­i­ties of LSM, a dis­tinc­tive honor was cre­ated to rec­og­nize and pay trib­ute to achieve­ments within the re­gion in the ar­eas of lead­er­ship, ser­vice and men­tor­ing. The LSM Her­itage Award is the or­ga­ni­za­tion’s high­est honor. Award cri­te­ria were es­tab­lished for each of the three di­vi­sions of the Her­itage Award, which are pre­sented in a three­year ro­ta­tion process. The An­nual Her­itage Award Re­cep­tion was in­te­grated into the An­nual Grad­u­a­tion Cer­e­mony in 2015.

McAl­lis­ter served in the U.S. Navy as an ac­tive duty of­fi­cer sta­tioned aboard ship and in Vir­ginia Beach, Guan­tanamo Bay, and at Patux­ent River Naval Air Sta­tion. He fin­ished his Navy ca­reer as a sup­ply corps of­fi­cer, retiring at the rank of cap­tain. His sec­ond ca­reer was in sup­port of Navy op­er­a­tions, co-found­ing Ea­gan, McAl­lis­ter As­so­ci­ates Inc., in 1984 and grow­ing that com­pany to 2,500 em­ploy­ees un­til 2010, when it was merged with an­other in­dus­try firm. McAl­lis­ter co-founded En­ter­prise Sys­tems Man­age­ment LLC in 2013, help­ing large or­ga­ni­za­tions with re­source plan­ning. His pro­fes­sional af­fil­i­a­tions are wide and var­ied, hav­ing served on the boards of St. Mary’s Hos­pi­tal, South­ern Mary­land Higher Ed­u­ca­tion Cen­ter, His­toric Sot­ter­ley, St. Mary’s Col­lege of Mary­land and His­toric St. Mary’s City Com­mis­sion.
