Alumnus Shane Kelly honored with Samuel J. Heyman Service to America Medal

At a September 15th Partnership for Public Service gala in Washington D.C., Shane Kelley (’01, CIN) and seven other notable Federal government employees were presented with Samuel J. Heyman Service to America Medals (Sammies). Kelly, who gained recognition and the Citizen Services Medal along with colleague Eva Ristow, developed a way to bring services to citizens living in impoverished and remote locations in the country utilizing two-way video technology.

According to the organization’s Program Manager, Samantha Donaldson, these awards are central to the organization. “It pays tribute to America's dedicated federal workforce, highlighting those who have made significant contributions to our country.” Honorees are chosen based on their commitment and innovation, as well as the impact of their work on addressing the needs of the nation.

Hailing from San Francisco to Haiti, Sammies recipients are working to confront increasingly complex challenges, from environmental crises to foreign wars to economic recovery. Their accomplishments tell the true stories of a dynamic group of talented, bright individuals who work tirelessly on behalf of the American people.
The Partnership for Public Service is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization based in Washington, D.C. that works to revitalize the federal government by inspiring a new generation to serve and by transforming the way government works.
