Lifetime Achievement Award


Recipients of the Distinguished Public Service Award are recognized in four categories: federal agencies or national laboratories; state agencies or universities; local or Indian government; and business and civic organizations. Individuals are nominated by the local, state or federal agencies where they are employed, or by private citizens who have knowledge of their exceptional contribution to public service.
Now in its 31st year, the New Mexico Distinguished Public Service Award is given to New Mexicans who have been publicly recognized for their outstanding contributions to the public service. These are the people who, through their deeds, echo the words of President John F. Kennedy, "Let the Public Service be a proud and lively career."
Each year the Governor appoints a person to serve as the Awards Council Chairman. This year the Awards Council is being chaired by Marlin D. Coffee, President and CEO of Oso Grande Technologies, Inc.
Over the past 31 years, the list of winners reads like a Who's Who of New Mexico history. To date, over 290 citizens of New Mexico have been publicly recognized for their outstanding contributions to the public service.
