Wednesday - 9/12/2012, 8:00pm EDT
The Partnership for Public Service named the winners of the Samuel J. Heyman Service to America Medals or Sammies and gave the top honor, Federal Employee of the Year, to Lynne Mofenson of the National Institutes of Health.
Lynne Mofenson, Federal Employee of the Year
Mofenson is the branch chief of Pediatric, Adolescent and Maternal AIDS Branch at the National Institutes of Health. Her work has contributed to efforts to end mother-to- child transmission, aiming for an HIV/AIDS-free generation. (Click here to listen to Mofenson's interview with Federal News Radio.)
"The Service to America Medals are a powerful illustration of the good that government does, which positively affects our lives every day," said Max Stier, Partnership for Public Service president and CEO, in a statement. We will never get what we want out of our government if we focus solely on its shortcomings and fail to celebrate its successes."
The Partnership will hold the awards ceremony Thursday evening in Washington. Finalists were nominated by their colleagues. The Partnership received more than 400 nominations this year.
The other Sammies winners are:
