The W. Ray “Ray J.” Johnson Award


This award has been presented annually to deserving staff members since 1997. Originally named the Pension Administrator’s Award, it emphasizes the belief that attitude and behavior are equally as important to professional success as job skills and abilities. The award was renamed in 2011 in honor of our respected former co-worker, Raymond Johnson, who was the first employee to receive the award. The recipient is selected by a group of past winners.
