Among the 10 recipients of the 2012 Henry L. Shattuck Public Service Awards was Ellen Lipsey, director of the City of Boston’s Landmarks Commission. Lipsey, who has been the BLC’s director since 1993, is the first member of the City’s preservation staff to receive the award, presented to high performing employees of the City of Boston for distinguished service.
More than 400 people attended a gala dinner at the World Trade Center Boston on October 23rd. Since 1985, 207 City of Boston employees have been awarded the Shattuck prize, a program of the non-profit Boston Municipal Research Bureau. Named for Henry L. Shattuck, attorney, Boston City Councilor and Massachusetts State Representative, this award reflects Mr. Shattuck’s view that “one person of conviction can make a difference.”
Historic Boston Inc. is delighted to celebrate what we already knew – that Ellen is a person of great conviction for Boston and preservation. Congratulations!
