Richard Caswell Award

The Richard Caswell Award was named after Richard Caswell, who served as Governor of North Carolina from 1776-1780 and again from 1784-1787. It was established in 1998 to honor loyal, efficient and dedicated employees with 45 or more years of service. The award recognizes them for providing valuable and extended dedicated services in all areas of State government. The Office of State Human Resources administers the program and coordinates a statewide or agency level ceremony for eligible employees.
