VSECU Thanks VT State Employees for Service


VSECU Thanks Vermont State Employees for Their Dedicated Service

Gov. Peter Shumlin has proclaimed May 2-8 to be Public Service Recognition Week to thank our hard-working state employees for their dedicated service to their fellow Vermonters. Each year, state managers and supervisors recognize members of their staff who have exemplified the kind of dedication and hard work it takes to keep our state running efficiently and effectively.

Twenty-four individual state employees and nine state employee teams were honored on May 2 at a luncheon sponsored by VSECU at the Montpelier Elks Club. Kate Duffy, Commissioner of the Department of Human Resources, and Gov. Shumlin distributed the awards, while Jeb Spaulding, Secretary of Administration, read descriptions of the recipients and their outstanding work.

His job was to make sure the Vermont Air National Guard runways were clear of snow, which was particularly challenging this past winter with record snowfall. McMahon was nominated for recognition by his supervisor, Chief Master Sergeant John Talcott. On hand to congratulate McMahon and Talcott were VSECU’s Dawn Newton, Branch Delivery Coordinator, and Lynette Kemp, Communications Coordinator.
