Miami Herald, The (FL)
A social worker, prosecutor, teacher and two police officers will be among 10 civil servants honored tonight as the 1997 winners of the Green Family Foundation American Values Award.
The award, sponsored by the foundation and created through the United Way of Dade County, annually recognizes 10 outstanding ``rank-and-file'' public-service employees who also do volunteer work in the community. ``Our honorees exemplify the values of integrity, courage, respect and service to others, the kind of American values that have made this country great,'' said Steven Green, who started the Green Family Foundation with his wife Dorothea to support community and national service initiatives. ``By honoring these extraordinary individuals and their exemplary record of service, we hope to salute all public-service employees who make our communities healthier, safer and more caring places to live.''
