A VALUATION officer and an assistant architectural officer were honoured with the prestigious Shah Alam City Council (MBSA) Mayor’s Special Award for outstanding service.
Both Maysarah Mohd Yusuf, 45, and Hairuddin Saidan, 49, said they would continue to strive hard to make a difference in the workplace.
Maysarah, who is with the city council’s Valuation and Property Management Department, was overwhelmed when her name was announced for the award at the MBSA Convention Centre in Section 13 in the Selangor capital.
“Being honoured with the Mayor’s Special Award will motivate me to strive harder as I feel there are opportunities for betterment in my profession,” said the Bachelor of Science in Property Management graduate from Universiti Teknologi Malaysia, Johor Baru.
Hairuddin, who has been with MBSA’s Buildings Department for 23 years, said, “It never crossed my mind that I would be recognised for my work but now the award gives me a sense of pride and motivates me.
“I am grateful to all in MBSA for being a motivation in my career and I hope to achieve greater heights.”
Maysarah and Hairuddin each received RM4,000 and a certificate of commendation.
