Director Weir a finalist for leadership award

HCJFS Director Moira Weir has been chosen as a national finalist for an award recognizing government leaders.

Weir was named one of ten finalists for a 2017 Route Fifty Navigator Award in the category of Agency and Department Leadership. Weir was praised as someone who has built the foundation for success and created an environment for innovation.
She was one of nearly 300 people nominated for the award.
