Nominate a state employee for Ambassador Award

-A A +A

As governor, I am amazed time and again at the fortitude, work ethic and professionalism our state employees exhibit. Through budget cuts and the demand to do more with less, they continue to rise to the top and work to serve others.
Every state employee should be proud of the role they play in meeting the needs of so many Kentuckians across the Commonwealth with professionalism, consistency and pride. I could not run state government without them. I am constantly reminded of the great job they do as Jane and I travel the state.
For these and so many other reasons, I’ve proclaimed the first week of October as Public Employee Recognition Week. Jane and I hope you will join us in recognizing their hard work and dedication.
If you work with or know a state employee whom you would like to recognize, please consider nominating them for an “Ambassador Award.” There are six award categories: customer service, courage, leadership, professional achievement, teamwork and community service and volunteerism.
The 2011 recipients will be announced in October, and the Personnel Cabinet is already accepting nominations for its 2012 awards at its website at personnel.ky.gov.
Jane and I truly appreciate and value the service state employees give to the citizens of the Commonwealth. I hope you will take a moment and honor them during this week of recognition.

Gov. Steven L. Beshear
