PHILADELPHIA - Steven Hirsh of Marlton, New Jersey recently received the 2003 Glenn Witmer Award. The award is the most prestigious honor conferred upon employees of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, mid-Atlantic Region.
Mr. Hirsh was recognized by the U.S.EPA for his outstanding achievements in environmental cleanup at the Aberdeen Proving Ground in Aberdeen, Maryland. Until his recent promotion, Mr. Hirsh served as project manager for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency at the Army’s Aberdeen Proving Ground Superfund site since 1989.
Each year, The Glenn Witmer award is presented to the EPA employee whose service is most distinguished by concern for the environment, enthusiasm for environmental programs, a local approach to problem solving, attention to detail, resourcefulness, initiative and an ability to work with people in a manner that fosters cooperation, understanding and resolution of environmental programs.
Earlier this year Mr. Hirsh received a letter of commendation from U.S. Senator Paul Sarbanes of Maryland. The Senator wrote “Your work in developing strong community relations, and citizen involvement in important matters facing the Aberdeen Proving Ground is greatly appreciated and a notable quality for a public servant.”
The letter was accompanied by an American flag that had flown over the U.S. Capitol in Hirsh’s honor.
Hirsh has lived in Marlton, New Jersey since 1984. He lives with his wife Debbie and his two sons, Brian 10 and Glenn 15. In his spare time, Mr. Hirsh is active with the Cub Scouts and enjoys fishing with his sons.
