Public service award winners named.
WORCESTER -- The Worcester Regional Research Bureau has announced the 2015 recipients of the Thomas S. Green Public Service Award, which are given each year to public employees who have made outstanding contributions to public service.
The winners are Patricia Bruchman, chief public health nurse, Worcester Division of Public Health; Pamela Callahan, training coordinator for the Worcester Department of Human Resources; Michael Ferguson, principal civil engineer for the Worcester Department of Public Works and Parks; Michael Lyons, AVID teacher and site coordinator for Worcester Public Schools, and James Robbins, Westboro town planner.
The Research Bureau's Award Committee, chaired by Barbara Clifford of the Corridor Nine Area Chamber of Commerce, selected the recipients.
The awards recognize the efforts of people exhibiting exceptional competence and efficient handling of all responsibilities, willing performance of tasks above and beyond the call of duty, a friendly, helpful and cooperative attitude and work that distinguished the employee from others.
The awards ceremony will occur at 5 p.m. March 25 at Assumption College. A reception will follow. Those wishing to attend the free event should call (508) 799-7169 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Green Awards are named in memory of Thomas S. Green, a founder of The Research Bureau and one of its original directors. Mr. Green was a civic leader for many decades and a vice president of Norton Co. (now Saint-Gobain).
"The Green Awards highlight the unsung heroes and let public servants know that exceptional efforts are recognized and appreciated,'' said Timothy S. McGourthy, executive director.
The Research Bureau, founded in 1985, does nonpartisan research and analysis of public policy issues to promote public debate and decision-making.
