This week is Public Service Recognition Week. The Partnership for Public Service and the Washington Post often work together to identify Federal Employees to exemplify their missions or inspire others to public service.  Last month, Mark Misczak, Deputy Director of the Individual Assistance Division was selected for this recognition in light of his career-long contributions in assisting disaster survivors and their communities. The feature focuses on motivations for service as well as the achievements/impacts of the work accomplished.  This feature highlights why FEMA is such an inspiring place to work.   We look forward to seeing future stories about other employees sharing their experiences about what is like to serve the public.
