The State Higher Education Executive Officers Association (SHEEO) has named Michael P. Meotti, executive director of the Washington Student Achievement Council (WSAC), as the recipient of its 2023 Exceptional Leader Award.

Under Meotti's leadership, WSAC developed the innovative Regional Challenge Grant program, which builds partnerships between the state and community leaders to close equity gaps, increase college enrollment and success, and reflect regional strategies to inform statewide policy solutions. Meotti also oversaw implementation and expansion of the Washington College Grant (WA Grant), considered a model for need-based state financial aid programs, and named the most equity-focused free college program in the country by the Education Trust.
