Judicial Branch administrator Gina B. Apicelli was presented with the Caroline L. Gross Fellowship, a program established in memory of the late House Majority Leader, at the Supreme Court on April 30.
The fellowship will fund three weeks of study at the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University in a program designed for senior executives in state and local government.
"As an employee of the court system, I am thrilled to receive this award because it acknowledges the impact our efforts have on the citizens of New Hampshire," Apicelli said. "I am grateful for the opportunity to spend time with others in the public sector to think about how we can better meet the needs of the people we serve."
Senior Associate Supreme Court Justice Linda S. Dalianis, who chaired the Family Division Implementation Committee, spoke of Apicelliís importance to the creation of the Family Division.
"Ginaís exceptional skill as an administrator and her devotion to the project were essential to its success," Dalianis said.
