South Pasadena Chief City Clerk Marc Donohue was presented with the Exceptional Service in Mentoring Award at the City Clerk’s Association Annual Conference last week in Anaheim.
Several categories for awards were handed out including the City Clerk of the Year, going this year to Mary Gourley, representing the City of Sebastopol.
“Our association has a mentor program that partners experienced city clerks with new people who are just entering the profession,” explained Donohue. “Our job is to help guide them through achieving their Certified Municipal Clerk (CMC) designation.”
Natalie Hayworth, a management assistant in the city clerk’s office at South Pasadena City Hall who has left the city, earned the designation a year ago.
“I feel honored to receive this recognition,” said Donohue. “It has always been a passion of mine to mentor others coming into the profession. Giving back is what makes the City Clerk’s Association of California so special.”
