SACRAMENTO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/17/14 -- Larry E. Temple, Executive Director of the Texas Workforce Commission (TWC), was presented the 18th annual Bob Bullock Award at the Texas Digital Government Summit held in Austin.
The Bob Bullock Award is given to a Texas state executive or elected official for outstanding leadership and a career that exemplifies dedication to serving and improving the lives of Texas citizens.
Mr. Temple is being recognized for his breadth of professional accomplishments -- his exemplary leadership skills and commitment to advocating for workforce education literacy for Texas residents.
During his decade-long tenure at the TWC, he has focused on a high level of customer service and has had keen oversight of the fiscal budget. Last year, he earned the President's Award from the National Association of State Workforce Agencies for his diligence in serving the public through partnerships and training.
Under his leadership, the TWC has helped the state maintain a competitive and growing workforce, with 34,000 Texans obtaining job skills advancement through TWC training programs in 2013.
"We are honored to present the 2014 Bob Bullock Award to Mr. Temple for his tireless efforts to improve government operations and better serve the citizens of Texas," said Alan Cox, senior vice president of Government Technology. "His leadership and financial stewardship are evident by the successes of the commission and thriving Texas workforce."
A 16-year public-service veteran, Mr. Temple oversees a $1.5 billion operating budget and is charged with the day-to-day operations of the TWC, a 3,500-employee agency that provides workforce development services to Texans.
The award is presented annually by Government Technology and is named in honor of former Texas politician Bob Bullock, whose public-service career spanned more than four decades. Last year's award was presented to Dr. Kyle Janek, Executive Commissioner of the Texas Health and Human Services Commission.
