Through SECU Foundation's sponsorship of the 2013 Governor's Awards for Excellence, State Employees' CU (SECU) members helped honor 18 individuals and a state agency for their extraordinary accomplishments and dedicated service to the state and citizens of North Carolina.
 
Held at the N.C. Museum of History in Raleigh and hosted by the Office of State Human Resources, awards were presented to each recipient by Thomas Stith, the governor's chief of staff, and Neal Alexander, director of the Office of State Human Resources.
 
Awards were in the categories of Customer Service, Efficiency and Innovation, Human Relations, Outstanding State Government Service, Public Service, Safety and Heroism, and Spirit of North Carolina.  The award is the highest honor bestowed upon a state employee.
 
Mark Twisdale, SECU executive vice president of administrative services and the SECU Foundation executive director, welcomed guests to the Nov. 19 ceremony. He noted "the work of public employees is often behind the scenes and unrecognized, yet invaluable to the strength and vitality of our state."
 
"Nearly 90,000 state employees serve North Carolina, not only through their jobs, but through the many volunteer, community service and charitable organizations they champion," he said. "As a cooperative, we stand firmly upon the principle of 'People Helping People,' and no one knows more about helping people than the dedicated state employees who make a difference in the lives of millions of North Carolinians each and every day."
