Brunswick County Manager Ann Hardy has been named Alumnus of the Year by the UNCW Masters in Public Administration (MPA) faculty.

Hardy graduated from the MPA program in 2004, while working for the Brunswick County School System. She was a member of the MPA program’s second graduating class, and in her final year received the Ray Dawson Award for commitment to excellence in public service, looking at things such as academic focus, professional goals and volunteerism, according to Brunswick County Spokeswoman Amanda Hutcheson.

“The Alumnus of the Year award also recognizes public service, as well as the student’s contributions to the MPA program as an alumnus. It recognizes folks who we think are role models for our graduates, who show what they can achieve,” said Dr. Mark Imperial, Associate Professor and Director of the MPA Program. “Ann Hardy has demonstrated this, not just working hard for the residents of Brunswick County in her role as county manager, but continuing to give back to the MPA program by serving on its Community Advisory Board. She is the type of public servant we are proud to call an alumnus.”

In addition to being recognized at a ceremony earlier this month, Hardy has been asked to speak at the 2014 MPA graduation ceremony.

“Based on my time working with Ann, it is obvious that this recognition is well-deserved,” Brunswick County Commissioners Chairman Phil Norris said. “Her dedication and professionalism are made evident every day.”
