Distinguished Fed Honored

Dr. H.C. 'Mac' McClure, the recently retired head of the Oklahoma City Federal Executive Board, has been awarded the highest honor given to federal civilians, the President's Award for Distinguished Federal Service.

McClure, the director of the Federal Aviation Administration's Mike Munroney Aeronautic Center in Oklahoma City, received the award at a retirement ceremony, where he was honored for nearly 30 years of service in the federal government. McClure joined the FAA in 1971 and spent three years in the Army before that.

OPM Director Jim King presented the award, highlighting McClure's leadership during the aftermath of the bombing of the Oklahoma City Federal Building.

"Dr. McClure's leadership of the Oklahoma Federal Executive Board brought relief, comfort and compassion to the victims and to the families of those tragically lost," King said.

"I've known some outstanding public servants, but none more so than the one we honor tonight," King said.

McClure is only the second person to receive the award since President Clinton took office. The first was Ronald Geisler, who served as Executive Clerk of the White House and worked under seven presidents.
