BATON ROUGE, La. – A Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (DOTD) employee was recognized today for exemplary service.
Sue Lee Glass, DOTD administrative assistant, has been named as a 2006 recipient of the Charles E. Dunbar Jr. Career Service Award, sponsored by the Louisiana Civil Service League.
During the ceremony, DOTD Secretary Johnny B. Bradberry thanked Glass for her many contributions, noting that her “dedication to excellence and accountability in public service is an inspiration to all of us.”
Daniel E. Sullivan, executive vice president of the Louisiana Civil Service League, also helped to recognize the recipients.
Glass, a DOTD employee for 32 years, joined the department as a legal secretary in 1974. In her 32 years with DOTD, she has worked as an administrative assistant in DOTD’s legal section, the Hammond sign shop and the Baton Rouge testing lab. She also has been an active member of her community, devoting her time to the local Girl Scouts and school programs.
Glass received a commemorative plaque at a luncheon held March 2 in New Orleans.
More than 600 classified public employees have been recognized since the Charles E. Dunbar Jr. Career Service Award’s inception 47 years ago. Thirty of the past honorees have been DOTD employees.
Nominees are judged by four criteria: commitment to classified service; contributions toward work or workplace environment; personal initiative; and volunteer career service.
