Raytheon Co. chairman and CEO William H. Swanson has received the Atlantic Legal Foundation‘s annual award for his contributions to the country’s security, according to a Raytheon statement.

Hayward D. Fisk, foundation chairman, presented the 25th Annual Award for 2012 at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce building last week, citing Swanson’s “industry leadership in providing innovative technologies and solutions that contribute to our nation’s security.”

In his acceptance speech, Swanson lauded the foundation’s ready support for public policy principles and enjoined businesses to venture out and be more active in supporting science, technology, engineering and math education.

“One area where business engagement is needed is helping improve workforce alignment,” Swanson said.

“Too many students and adults are training for jobs in which labor surpluses exist and demand is low while high-demand jobs, particularly those in STEM fields, go unfilled.”
