The President's Purple Star Awards
JMU asks you to provide nominations for the President’s Purple Star Awards. Nominations will be accepted in the areas of customer service, innovation, teamwork, community service, and career achievement. The President’s Purple Star Awards will mirror the state public service awards.
Each year the Governor’s Office solicits nominations for state agency public service awards to outstanding state employees in corresponding categories. Please note: There have been years in the past in which the Governor’s Office has not taken nominations. Submission of JMU nominations is dependent upon whether or not the Governor’s Office sends out a request for nominations.
Employees who receive a President’s Purple Star Award will automatically be nominated for a Governor’s Award for Public Service in the corresponding category. These awards are an opportunity to demonstrate the outstanding contributions that our JMU employees add to the state workforce.
We are now accepting nominations for the following awards:
- Agency “Star”
- Career Achievement Award
- Community Service and Volunteerism Award
- Customer Service Award
- Innovation Award
- Teamwork Award
- Workplace Health, Wellness and Safety Award
Submit nominations through the President’s Purple Star Award website. Please direct any questions regarding the nomination process to Tara Roe in Human Resources.
