Valdosta city manager honored with public service award

The Loyce W. Turner Outstanding Public Official Award for 2003 was presented to Valdosta City Manager Larry H. Hanson, on April 22, at a luncheon held at Valdosta State University.

Hanson, the fifth recipient of the award, was chosen for his record of dedicated and distinguished public service. Hanson was cited for contributing to the economic development and to the quality of life in the City of Valdosta and in South Georgia.
VSU's Master of Public Administration Advisory Committee presents the award annually. The award, named after Loyce W. Turner, former Georgia state senator, is given to individuals who serve as role models for those just beginning or contemplating careers in public service.
