BLUES HONOR RETIRED STATE EMPLOYEE WITH SERVICE AWARD

 DETROIT, Aug. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Michigan's Senior Advisory Council will honor Edward J. Setlock, president of the Detroit Area Chapter of the State Employee Retirees Association (SERA-DAC), with its third annual Claude Pepper Senior Services Award. The award ceremony will occur during the state meeting of the State Employee Retirees Association on Aug. 6, at the Royal Scott Golf and Bowl, 4722 Grand River, Lansing, Mich.
 The Senior Services Award was established by Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Michigan's board of directors as a tribute to the late U.S. Sen. Claude Pepper. The award is given annually by Blue Cross and Blue Shield's Senior Advisory Council to an individual that has demonstrated caring, concern and understanding of the special needs of senior citizens.
 A native resident of Michigan, Setlock began working for the Michigan Employment Security Commission on April 18, 1946. He became attached to the attorney general's staff on July 31, 1951, and was assigned to the Department of Labor. Upon his retirement in 1985, he became active in the Michigan State Employee Retirees Association and was elected its president in December 1986.
 Setlock was instrumental in drawing up a new set of by-laws and affiliating the Detroit Area Chapter with the statewide State Employee Retirees Association (SERA). Under his leadership, the local chapter has now grown to over 2,200 members.
 In addition to his position as chapter president, Setlock is also a member and former chair of the State Employee Retirees Executive Council Committee, chair and lobbyist for SERA-DAC and the SERA Council as well as a principal contributor to SERA-DAC's monthly publication.
