    NCPMC Chairperson, Mary De Lorenzo, attended on behalf of the Consortium.

    Speaking at yesterday’s event, UVI President Dr. David Hall congratulated the graduates, and urged them to view the milestone not as another certification achieved, but rather an important block in their quest to become better public servants.

    “In those early discussions, our notion of why we wanted to do this, was to make an investment in the quality of people who are managing and leading the Government of the Virgin Islands,” Dr. Hall said. “And that is still our mission, ro make sure that we don’t just sit back and complain about what’s wrong with an agency or what’s wrong with the government in general, but that we do something — that we invest in the quality of individuals who are leading and managing the Government of the Virgin Islands. And your participation and completion of this program demonstrates that that is a good investment, and one that we are confident will pay off in the future.”

    Graduating from St. Croix yesterday were Florine Audain-Hassell, Legislature of the Virgin Islands, Natalie Bailey, Department of Human Services, Andrea E. Barreiro, Department of Human Services, Desiree Bennett-Felix, Department of Labor, Tresa Civil, Virgin Islands Waste Management Authority, Selma Deterville-DaCosta, Department of Human Services, Laura M. Forbes, Juan F. Luis Hospital, Keverine D. George, Department of Human Services, Sarah Naomi James, Department of Human Services, Debora Nieves-George, Department of Labor, Valcina A. Quashie-Peters, Office of Collective Bargaining, Genevieve Whitaker, Elections System of the Virgin Islands, and Zelda M. Williams, Virgin Islands Housing Authority.

    On Friday, Aug. 5, 2016, exactly 100 New Jersey public servants graduated from Rutgers School of Public Affairs and Administration’s (SPAA) New Jersey Certified Public Manager (CPM) Program. Held in Rutgers University’s Cook Student Center, the ceremony highlighted various facets of public service as certificates were presented to police officers, firefighters, analysts, and managers and directors at the municipal, county, and state levels.

    “Students learn from the instructors, as well as from each other, and graduate with both improved leadership skills and renewed commitment to public service.”

    Offered through the State of New Jersey Civil Service Commission, and accredited by the National Consortium of Certified Public Managers, the New Jersey CPM Program at Rutgers SPAA equips participants with skills to become more effective leaders and managers within their organizations through courses that teach strategic thinking, budget processes, administrative law, and management, among other topics.

    Two graduates were presented with Askew Awards – bronze medallions awarded to CPM graduates whose capstones serve as examples of excellence in public service by bringing measurable change to government, improving customer service, and empowering vulnerable populations. Wayne Jeter, the manager of training for the State of New Jersey Civil Service Commission, presented the awards to Corporal Timothy Brown of the Glassboro Police Department and Sergeant Denise Palmisano of the Monmouth County Sheriff’s Department. Jeter also recognized 13 award nominees with notable capstones.
