April 23, 2018

WSB has received the 2018 Harry S. Swearingen Award for Outstanding Achievement and Excellence in Chapter Service (Corporate) from the American Public Works Association (APWA). The award was established in 1958 to perpetuate the memory of Harry Seller Swearingen, who worked persistently on behalf of APWA and its mission. The award is presented to a corporate agency for achievement at the chapter level that supports APWA’s strategic plan, goals and objectives through dedicated and longstanding contributions.

The APWA Awards Committee judged entries based on consistent contributions or activities by a corporate candidate and the enhancement of the effectiveness of the services provided to membership on behalf of the chapter and APWA.

WSB will be presented with the award at the APWA National Conference in Kansas City, MO on August 27, 2018.
