Clark County Public Health Director Scott Lockard was recognized recently by his peers in the Kentucky Health Department Association with it’s Trail Blazer Award.
The award is given annually to a public health director who has been on the job less than five years and who has demonstrated great leadership, loyalty, devotion and perseverance for the betterment of public health departments, with an impact on comprehensive public health services.
“I was very humbled and honored to have been nominated and selected for the Trail Blazer Award,” Lockard said. “Coming from my peers makes this award very special.”
Lockard said the award was possible only because of the work his staff has done.
“What makes me most proud about this award is that I think it reflects on the agency as a whole, and I’ve tried to convey that to my staff,” said Lockard. “I haven’t done anything here. I owe it all to the hard work and dedication of our staff, and by them working hard together, we have made many improvements in the agency.”
