Evan Miller, Danielle Littmann, DAPA President Gene Dvornick, and Bert
Scolietti celebrate at the DAPA Awards on December 19, 2019.
Bert Scoglietti, Evan Miller (MPA '17), and Danielle Littmann (MPA '20) were honored for their commitment to public service by the Delaware Association for Public Administration (DAPA) on December 19, 2019.
Bert Scoglietti, Director of Policy and External Affairs at the Office of Management and Budget, received the Delaware Public Service Award.
The DAPA Public Service Award recognizes a public administrator who has made substantial contributions to professional public management and service in Delaware. The first award was presented in 1974, and the criteria established for the first award continues to guide the selection process.
Bert's nominator wrote that he "has worked in state finance offices for decades and knows everything about the State of Delaware financial administrative process. AND, Bert has always said yes to every request to help educate students and local officials on this process."
"We are honored to celebrate Bert for his service to the State of Delaware," said DAPA Vice President Leann Moore.
Bert has been with the Office of Management and Budget and the former state Budget Office in various capacities for over 30 years. Bert holds a bachelor's degree in chemistry from St. Vincent College and pursued graduate studies at the Katz School of Business at the University of Pittsburgh.
Evan Miller, Projects Coordinator for the City of Rehoboth Beach, received the Young Professional of the Year Award.
This award recognizes a young professional working in Delaware who demonstrates excellence in contribution to public administration, management, or service; active support and fostering of other young leaders in their field; and innovation of new practices and promoting the importance of these practices in their field.
Evan's nominator wrote that he "has made a difference at the City of Rehoboth Beach, exemplified the mission of our city, and has positively impacted the staff and community."
Evan credits his graduate education at the University of Delaware's Biden School of Public Policy and Administration for helping set the stage for his work in local government, particularly courses in financial management, human resources, public policy, and land use.
Additionally, serving as a Research Assistant with the Institute for Public Administration (IPA) gave him excellent exposure to working on policy at the state and federal levels. Other Biden School activities, such as the Student Association of Policy and Administration and New Visions in Public Affairs, helped Evan build his r??sum?? and broaden his exposure to public administration.
Danielle Littmann, MPA Student in the Biden School and Public Administration Fellow at IPA, received the Outstanding Student Award.
The DAPA Outstanding Student Public Service Award is presented each year to a graduate student who best exemplifies the caliber of achievement necessary for a successful public service career.
Danielle's nominator wrote that she "is highly productive, personable, has a great work ethic, and exudes a highly professional demeanor. She is an outstanding role model and inspiration to many undergraduate and graduate students. She is oriented, yet remains cool when balancing the immense pressures of academic, professional, and personal responsibilities."
In addition to her role at IPA and as a student, Danielle is heavily involved at the university as the Executive Director of New Vision for Public Affairs Academic Journal and the Co-President of University of Delaware International City/Council Management Association Student Chapter. She also has a strong commitment and passion for local government and spent her summer in Middletown, Delaware, as a Local Government Management Fellow, where she completed financial policies and created a five-year Capital Improvement Plan for the town. After graduation, she plans to seek local government job opportunities in her home state of Massachusetts.
DAPA, which is the Delaware Chapter of the American Society of Public Administration (ASPA), hosts an annual awards event to celebrate those dedicated to the fields of public administration and public service. Biden School Director Dr. Maria Aristigueta is a former president of ASPA. DAPA President Gene Dvornick, Town Manager of Georgetown, Delaware, is a part-time student in the Biden School MPA program. IPA staff members Leann Moore and Julia O'Hanlon serve on the council, as does Evan Miller. For more information about DAPA visit https://www.dapanet.org/.
