Samuel J. Heyman Service to America Medals® Summer Series

Our government is powered by dedicated public servants working in cities and towns across the county to support and improve our daily lives. The Samuel J. Heyman Service to America Medals® honor these exceptional public servants who keep our nation running and moving forward.

Over the summer, we will be holding conversations with the 2023 Service to America Medals, or “Sammies,” finalists about how our government leads in innovation, delivers services to the public, engages around the world, and demands transparency and accountability from both itself and the private sector. Each LinkedIn Live event will have 2-3 honorees, moderated by a member of the Partnership for Public Service staff, and will answer questions from live participants. To learn more about the 2023 Sammies finalists, check out their profiles.
