Kwame Rush, 2014 Employee of the Year Each year the City of Hyattsville recognizes one employee as the Employee of the Year, and bestows upon them the Seth Holton Award. Holton was the City's first Clerk. The most recent recipient of the award is Kwame Rush, a driver in the solid waste division of the Department of Public Works. Upon receiving the award, Mr. Rush had been with the City of Hyattsville for more than 12 years.
Mr. Rush is an example of customer service at its best. He has daily contact with City residents and staff and is often complimented for his positive way of interacting with all. Mr. Rush serves this City no matter the weather, and exhibits pride and excellence while performing difficult, and often under-appreciated duties. He maneuvers large vehicles throughout the City on very narrow streets and roads, yet his skill and attention to detail has resulted in an accident-free, perfect driving record.
Congratulations Mr. Rush, and thank you for your excellent service to the City of Hyattsville.
