Prime Minister, Bruce Golding, will on Wednesday, November 19, hand out long service medals to civil servants who have worked in the public sector in their specific areas of expertise for twenty five years and over.
The awarding of the long service medals to civil servants was introduced in 1988. Now in its 20th year, the Jamaica Civil Service Long Service Awards, recognises the invaluable service of Government workers, who have devoted the best years of their professional careers to nation building through the public sector, covering all civilian posts in all ministries. The presentations will take place during the celebration of Civil Service Week, which will run from November 16-21 this year. The ceremony will be held at Kings House on Wednesday, November 19, starting at 2:45 p.m.
At the Awards Ceremony, Governor-General, His Excellency the Most Honourable Professor Sir Kenneth Hall, the Prime Minister, and other dignitaries, will hand out the medals to some four hundred civil servants, in recognition of their outstanding contribution to the Government and people of Jamaica.
