Upon completion of his Bachelor’s degree, Mr. Vaden was employed as a survey statistician, first with the U. S. Census Bureau and later with the Federal Communications Commission.

As part of his responsibilities, Mr. Vaden made numerous presentation on behalf of the Department to groups outside the Department as well as to Department staff.
