County Executive Thomas P. Gordon would like to congratulate county Communication Specialist robin brown for receiving The Governor’s Heritage Award from Governor Jack Markell Thursday.
Brown was among three people receiving the award, including Richard B. Carter and Harry F. Themal. The Governor’s Heritage Award is given to those Delawareans who have contributed significantly to the recognition, preservation, and celebration of Delaware’s heritage.
Gov. Markell gave out the awards during a ceremony held at the state’s Buena Vista Conference Center near New Castle. He was joined by Director of Delaware Public Archives/State Archivist Stephen M. Marz, Delaware artist Peter Saenger, and brown, Carter and Themal.
Brown joined New Castle County Government in autumn 2015 after a nearly 40-year career as a journalist with The News Journal.
“We’re very proud of robin for receiving this well-deserved award,” Gordon said. “We’re so pleased to be able to have her on our team to help us tell New Castle County’s story the way she’s been telling Delaware’s story for decades.”
Chief of Staff Jim McDonald said brown has brought a lot of energy to New Castle County since joining the Executive Office.
“I can imagine how much she’s accomplished throughout her career,” he said. “It’s hard for me to keep up with her, but that’s a good thing. We thank Governor Markell for taking time to honor robin.”
