According to PSR-C, the students are being recognized during Public Service Recognition Week – a time set aside to pay tribute to the profession of public service and to recognize those individuals who have done an outstanding job during the year. The May 11 event will be PSR-C’s 29th recognition event.
Throughout the country, mayors, governors, agency leaders, communities and public service organizations participate in PSRW by issuing proclamations; hosting award ceremonies and special tribute events; and delivering messages about the value of public service. We encourage government leaders and public servants from all backgrounds to participate by showing appreciation to their employees and colleagues and by sharing stories of excellence in public service.
