The Harry S. Truman Public Service award is the highest honor that can be bestowed by the City of Independence.
Each year the Harry S. Truman Award Commission selects an outstanding public servant, either elected or appointed
from the ranks of the public servants of the City of Independence, the County of Jackson, the State of Missouri,
or the entire nation, who best typifies and possesses the qualities of dedication, industry, ability, honesty,
and integrity that distinguished Harry S. Truman in his years of public service.
