GLENN HEIGHTS, Texas  – The city of Glenn Heights marked its first observance of Public Service Recognition Week this year through educational partnerships with local schools as well as events honoring volunteers and employees. 

The week of May 1-7 is the national observance of PSRW, which has been celebrated the first full week in May for the past 26 years. It is a time set aside to honor the men and women who serve our nation as federal, state, county and local government employees.
