Frederick County Executive Jan Gardner announced a new initiative today to celebrate county government employees as Unsung Heroes. Each week, new heroes will be celebrated for their dedication to public service during the coronavirus pandemic.
“I am extremely grateful for the unwavering commitment of our employees,” Executive Gardner said. “In a very stressful time, these men and women rose to every challenge to meet the needs of the people they serve. The Unsung Heroes Award Program lets them know they are appreciated.”
For the next several weeks, the stories of these Unsung Heroes will be shared with the public on social media each Friday. Nominations are submitted by colleagues or supervisors. Heroes are selected in any of three categories: public service, operations, and organization. Each will receive a gift card.
