Governor Steve Bullock and Department of Administration Director John Lewis today presented the 2017 Governor’s Awards for Excellence to state employees. These awards go to employees from across the state who have gone above and beyond to ensure state government operates more efficiently and effectively.
“While not every Montanan may immediately recognize it, every citizen brushes elbows with the good work of state government employees,” said Governor Bullock. “It’s because of their tireless efforts and devotion to the greater good that helps folks all across the state succeed and that keeps Montana a place we are all proud to call home.”
Recipients of the awards range from teams with a singular mission to individuals who found creative ways to make state government more efficient and implemented cost-saving measures.
“These individuals and teams represent the highest caliber of dedication to Montana families across the state,” said Department of Administration Director John Lewis. “They work hard to make Montana a better place for all of us and we are extremely thankful for that commitment day in and day out.”
A total of 252 awards were shared today during a special award ceremony at the Great Northern Hotel this afternoon. A full list of winners are available athttp://hr.mt.gov/governorsawards
