Honored for Mentoring and Teamwork

Steven Hubner has been selected as one of the recipients for the 2019 Paul Gleason Lead by Example award. Three individuals from across the wildland fire service have been chosen to receive this national award.

The award was created by the NWCG Leadership Committee to remember Paul Gleason’s contributions to the wildland fire service. During a career spanning five decades, Paul was a dedicated student of fire, a teacher of fire, and a leader of firefighters. The intent of this award is to recognize individuals or groups who exhibit this same spirit and who exemplify the wildland fire leadership values and principles. Steven's work in support of the Wildland Fire Leadership Development Program has been a demonstration of mentoring and teamwork.

Steven was recognized for going above and beyond the call of duty in order to consistently provide high-quality training, mentorship, and teamwork opportunities to youth and women, strengthening the diversity and cohesiveness of the wildland fire workforce. His dedicated work with Americorps, as well as federal and state agencies in the Northeast, has positively influenced hundreds of young men and women.

Steven's unselfish contributions of time, talent, and support is commendable. The youth under his leadership have gained valuable life skills and professional ethics on which to build successful careers and become leaders themselves. Steven's unwavering commitment to building the team is an example of what right looks like and will serve the wildland fire service and beyond for years to come.

Congratulations, Steven, on a job well done!
