Shipyard honors employees and sailors during Employee of the Year ceremony

The Puget Sound Naval Shipyard honored employees and sailors at the Employee of the Year ceremony

A beyond-capacity crowd at the Admiral Theater gathered to watch the Puget Sound Naval Shipyard and Intermediate Maintenance Facility honor 33 of its top employees and sailors during its annual Employee of the Year ceremony on Wednesday.

For the first time, the event was also streamed live for viewing in the nearby Roxy Theater, allowing for those unable to be seated in the Admiral Theater to participate in the event as well. During the event, the command celebrated the accomplishments of 31 employees and two sailors selected from more than 200 personnel nominated for their 2018 performance in 25 categories.

Those categories include Sailor and Junior Sailor of the Year; supervisors and non-supervisors in administrative, trades and technical fields; innovation, safety, volunteer service, valor and a Spirit of Compassion award.

Captain Howard Markle, shipyard commander, presided over the event and lauded the winners, nominees and the command’s workforce.

“The greatest part of my job is recognizing your efforts and the work you do everyday,” Markle said in a press release. ” The great work you do – it is why we do the ceremony. You are without a doubt some of the greatest your country has to offer. The Navy could not do what it does without you.”

Today, PSNS & IMF employs more than 14,000 sailors and civilian personnel who accomplish the command’s mission to maintain, modernize and retire the U.S. Navy’s fleet.
