Ellen Kullman awarded state’s highest honor
Gov. Jack Markell gave Delaware’s highest honor to former Dupont CEO Ellen Kullman last night.
The governor presented the Order of the First State, the highest honor a governor can award, to Ms. Kullman at the Delaware Day Dinner at Buena Vista, a historic governor’s mansion.
Ms Kullman, who played basketball at Tower Hill and Tufts University, used a basketball analogy to describe the opportunities for Delaware in a changing market, saying that other players’ moves can create challenges but they can also create opportunities.
