Public service awards nominations accepted

Journal Staff Report

Nominations for the 2016 Governor’s New Mexico Distinguished Public Service Awards are now being accepted and will culminate in a gala celebration banquet this fall in Albuquerque.

The 46th annual program seeks out individuals to recognize not only unusual contributions to public service and the improvement of government at all levels, but also exceptional contributions to the community.

Ten to 12 individuals, plus a lifetime award recipient, typically are chosen each year.

The deadline to submit nominations is Sept. 1.

The program has maintained a focus on finding and honoring deserving individuals from throughout the state, and especially from smaller towns and pueblo and tribal areas.

Developed by Dr. Albert Rosenthal, professor and director emeritus in Public Administration at the University of New Mexico in the 1960s, it has raised thousands of dollars in scholarships at three New Mexico universities.

To nominate someone, call JoLou Ottino at 505-344-6177 or visit the program website at nmdpsa.nm.org.

Awards are given in four categories: federal government and national laboratories, state government and universities, local and Indian government, and business and civic.

The program is chaired Sherman McCorkle.

The awards program aims to promote public appreciation of the quality of people in public service and to encourage outstanding young people to seek careers in the public service.

Officials currently serving in elected office are not eligible for the awards.
