The Climate Program Office's Barbara Eubanks received the Silver Sherman Award on June 22, 2016, for going above and beyond her normal responsibilities to help fulfill NOAA’s mission.
The Silver Sherman Award recognizes NOAA people who excel at their jobs, achieve a milestone that contributes significantly or critically towards a particular program’s goal, or demonstrates leadership toward process improvement of a significant magnitude. It is to be awarded on an ad hoc basis by each member of the NOAA Senior Executive Service once a year.
NOAA Administrator Dr. Kathryn Sullivan announced the first Silver Sherman award for NOAA in January 2016. Barbara is the CPO’s Office Manager and is the first team member in the CPO to receive the award.
Americans’ health, security and economic wellbeing are tied to climate and weather. Every day, we see communities grappling with environmental challenges due to unusual or extreme events related to climate and weather. In 2011, the United States experienced a record high number (14) of climate- and weather-related disasters where overall costs reached or exceeded $1 billion. Combined, these events claimed 670 lives, caused more than 6,000 injuries, and cost $55 billion in damages. Businesses, policy leaders, resource managers and citizens are increasingly asking for information to help them address such challenges.
