Each year an outstanding public servant whose remarkable work is making life better for all Americans is recognized by local ASPA chapters across the nation. The award was presented March 25 at the BRADD board meeting.

Celebrated since 1985, Public Service Recognition Week is a nationwide public education campaign honoring the men and women who serve our nation as federal, state, county and local government employees. Each year the President and Congress designate the first full week of May (May 3-9) as PSRW and activities are held nationwide in celebration of public employees who put service above self. Presentation of this award kicks off the celebration events for the local chapter of ASPA.

ASPA is the leading interdisciplinary public service organization that represents all forums in the public service arena. ASPA advances the art, science, teaching, and practice of public and non-profit administration, promotes the value of joining and elevating the public service profession, builds bridges among all who pursue public purposes at home and internationally, provides networking and professional development opportunities and achieves innovative solutions to the challenges of governance.
