AUGUSTINE AND CADE WIN 1993 MARYLAND CHAMBER PUBLIC AFFAIRS AWARDS

 ANNAPOLIS, Md., May 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Norman R. Augustine, chairman and chief executive officer of Martin Marietta Corporation, and Sen. John A. "Jack" Cade of the Maryland General Assembly, have been named recipients of the 1993 Maryland Chamber of Commerce Public Affairs Awards, Chamber officials announced today.
 Augustine and Cade will receive the awards during the Chamber's 25th anniversary breakfast at the Omni Inner Harbor Hotel, Baltimore, Tuesday, May 25, at 8 a.m.
 The annual awards honor individuals who enhance public appreciation for the private enterprise system through their exemplary roles in the public and private sectors, according to Donald P. Hutchinson, president of the Maryland Chamber of Commerce.
 "Norm Augustine has played a decisive leadership role in focusing private business resources on strengthening education," Hutchinson said of the Chamber's private-sector award winner.
 As chairman of the Maryland Business Roundtable for Education, formed in 1992, Augustine has been instrumental in forging a statewide network of volunteer executives who bring business management practices to school administrators at dozens of test sites throughout Maryland.
 Two years ago, Martin Marietta also initiated a substantial long- term program to strengthen teacher training in math and science through the University of Maryland system.
 Augustine's business and community service career has been one of integrity and commitment. He is chairman of the board of the International Red Cross and serves on the board of the New American Schools Development Corporation.
 Trained as an aeronautical engineer, he joined Martin Marietta in 1977 after serving as undersecretary of the Army. Four times, the Department of Defense has decorated him with the Distinguished Service Medal, its highest civilian award.
 "Jack Cade is a tireless advocate of the business perspective in the Maryland General Assembly," Hutchinson said in announcing Cade's naming as public-sector award recipient. "In 1992, he was instrumental in steering legislators away from a corporate income tax hike to balance the budget."
 A Republican from Anne Arundel County, Cade is an 18-year veteran of the Maryland State Senate. He consistently applies sound business and finance principles to government.
 A long-standing member of the Senate Budget and Taxation Committee who specializes in state agencies and their budgets, Cade has a penchant for trimming pork barrel legislation. He routinely is assigned to the legislature's fiscal committees, where he aggressively questions proposals to identify their costs and practical consequences.
 The ex-Marine and magna cum laude graduate of Xavier University, with an MBA from Northwestern University, also is a real estate and management consultant with 38 years of professional experience.
 Last year the Public Affairs Awards went to Charles E. (Ted) Peck, retired chairman and CEO, The Ryland Group, Inc., and to Dr. Joseph L. Shilling, former state superintendent of schools.
