Texas A&M University President Michael K. Young has recognized Bush School of Government and Public Service Senior Administrative Coordinator Janeen Wood and the Office of Extended Education for their outstanding service to the University with the 2016-2017 President’s Meritorious Service Award.

The President’s Meritorious Service Awards recognize and reward staff for their commendable service to our great university. Throughout the fall, nominations for the awards were submitted and selected for recognition by an anonymous committee on the basis of demonstrated commitment to the Aggie core values of excellence, integrity, leadership, loyalty, respect, and selfless service. The Bush School Office of Extended Education was recognized for its service along with the Texas A&M Employment Services team.

“Both Janeen and the staff at the Office of Extended Education are an essential part of our team and are integral in supporting our mission of educating principled leaders in public and international affairs,” Bush School Dean Mark Welsh said. “This honor exemplifies the exceptional work this group of individuals do and the example they set.”

A ceremony to honor the awardees will be held on Monday, February 27, at 3:30 p.m. in MSC Bethancourt Ballroom with a reception to follow. The teams will be recognized with a plaque for departmental display as well as $200, a framed certificate of recognition, and a lapel pin. Individual recipients will receive a $1,000 cash award, a commemorative plaque, and a lapel pin. The President’s Meritorious Service Awards program is sponsored by the Office of the President and the Association of Former Students and coordinated by the Division of Human Resources and Organizational Effectiveness.

The Bush School Office of Extended Education coordinates the Bush School’s certificate programs for working professionals in the fields of homeland security, nonprofit management, national security affairs, and international affairs. The team is comprised of Rebecca Burgner, Lynn Cagle, Linda Heritage, Jennifer Lampo, Ruth McMullan, Courtney Shuttlesworth, and Ashlee Treadway.
