    JBPHH Hosted 60th Annual Excellence in Federal Government Awards

    PEARL HARBOR (NNS) -- Service members and federal employees were recognized during the 60th Annual Excellence in Federal Government Awards Program ceremony and luncheon at the Hickam Officer's Club on Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam (JBPHH), May 6.

    The ceremony was sponsored by the Honolulu-Pacific Executive Board (HPFEB) and recognized top performers for their outstanding performance in multiple categories.

    "We want to recognize as many federal employees we can, whether it's federal civilians or military, for their achievements and accomplishments," said Toni Allen, Deputy Executive Director for HPFEB.

    Service members and federal employees from commands throughout Hawaii were honored, including Sailors from JBPHH, U.S. Pacific Fleet and Navy Region Hawaii.

    "Receiving this award makes me feel honored and grateful to have had the opportunity to volunteer at so many communities on the island of Oahu," said Master-at-Arms 1st Class Jorge Galindo, an awardee in the Excellence in Community Service category. "I hope this inspires and motivates my Sailors and they learn that what you do does not go unheard."

    Awards were presented for 7 categories to include federal employees of the year in professional, administrative and technical, clerical or assistant and some were recognized for their excellence in community service.

    "I think this was the biggest turn out so far, and I think it's a credit to not only all the awardees, but the great leaders who took the time to recognize their people," said Chris Conklin, Executive Director for HPFEB.

    The annual Excellence in Federal Government Awards Program Luncheon and Expo is one of the HPFEB's most attended events of the year. The program recognizes outstanding federal employees for their efforts, leadership and initiative. The program encourages innovation and excellence in government, reinforces pride in federal service and helps call public attention to the broad range of services provided by federal employees.
