Honor Bestowed By The John Glenn School Of Public Affairs
NASA Administrator Charles Bolden (pictured) was presented the Excellence in Public Service Award Thursday by former Senator and astronaut John Glenn on behalf of the John Glenn School of Public Affairs at The Ohio State University.
"As NASA Administrator, Charlie has charted America's future in space, leading NASA's strategic efforts to fully utilize the International Space Station and launch our astronauts beyond low Earth orbit," Glenn said. "Throughout his career of public service, he has inspired a generation of future astronauts, researchers and innovators who are using what we learn in space to improve life here on Earth."
"I always have believed that service is the rent you pay for your room here on Earth, so it is an honor for me to accept this award from Sen. Glenn and the School of Public Affairs," Bolden said. "The John Glenn School of Public Affairs is the starting point for the young people here for making the commitment to public service. Nothing is more important than the path they have chosen."
The Excellence in Public Service Award honors a person who demonstrates outstanding dedication to public service.
