Rowan wildlife officer Anthony Sharum receives Governor’s Award

SALISBURY — Sgt. Anthony Sharum, a Rowan County-stationed wildlife officer with the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission, has received the 2012 Governor’s Award for Excellence for Outstanding Service.
Sharum received the honor for exhibiting service and initiative far above the normal requirements of his job.
“He has contributed significantly to promoting the public image of the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission and of state employees as a whole,” a press release says.
He received the award Tuesday.
The Governor’s Award for Excellence is the highest honor a state employee may receive. The award acknowledges and expresses appreciation for outstanding accomplishments that do not fall entirely within the scope of normal duties. The meritorious service is so singularly outstanding that special recognition is justified.
The Post will be doing a feature story in the future on what Sharum did to earn the award.
Sharum is one of 200 wildlife officers across the state who enforce hunting, trapping and inland fishing regulations and boating laws to protect the resources of North Carolina and the safety of citizens and visitors.
Three other staff members of the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission were nominated by their peers or supervisors for the 2012 Governor’s Award for Excellence: Lt. Todd Radabaugh, a wildlife officer stationed in Pender County; Dale Davis, a wildlife biologist based in eastern North Carolina; and Darrin Ball, a hunter education specialist serving western North Carolina.
Since 1947, the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission has been dedicated to the conservation and sustainability of the state’s fish and wildlife resources through research, scientific management, wise use and public input.
The commission is the state regulatory agency responsible for the enforcement of fishing, hunting, trapping and boating laws and provides programs and opportunities for wildlife-related educational, recreational and sporting activities.
