Lieutenant Governor's Award for Outstanding Rural Service
Congratulations to Jerry McGrath, the recipient of the 2016 Lieutenant Governor's Award for Outstanding Service to Rural Saskatchewan!
The Lieutenant Governor’s Award for Outstanding Service to Rural Saskatchewan, sponsored by SaskPower, is awarded to a Reeve, Councillor, or Administrator for his or her lifetime contribution to rural Saskatchewan (both retired and/or actively working individuals). The award is presented to the successful candidate at the Opening Ceremonies of the SARM Annual Convention. This forum provides an excellent opportunity to publicly recognize the recipient of this prestigious award.
The selection committee reviews all nominations and selects one individual who has not yet been formally recognized for his or her exemplary contributions in making rural Saskatchewan a better place to live. The committee includes representatives from the following organizations: Saskatchewan Association of Rural Municipalities, the Ministry of Government Relations, the Lieutenant Governor’s Office, and the Rural Municipal Administrators’ Association.
Rural Municipalities may nominate a Reeve, Councillor, or Administrator for this award, including the following information. Nominations should be sent to the SARM office by January 31, 2017.
- A completed Nomination Form; and
- Biographical information based on the enclosed Nomination Guidelines.
In the past, the selection committee has found it beneficial when applications clearly demonstrate how the nominee went over-and-above the call of duty to make a contribution to their community and/or rural Saskatchewan.
