Texas State University’s William P. Hobby Center for Public Service graduated sixty-one new Texas Certified Public Managers at the Texas State Capitol on Monday December 8, 2014. The CPM graduates and their families came from CPM Programs at the following locations: Round Rock, Arlington, Houston, Edinburg and Nacogdoches Texas. The graduates participated in CPM Programs offered by the following universities, Texas State, Stephen F. Austin, Sam Houston, and the University of Texas Pan American.

The CPM graduation speaker, Lynda Humble, the Interim City Manager of Duncanville, Texas, shared that while government, in general, is in peril by citizen disenchantment, media focus on the worst of government, and a drive for “less government”, we can make change in our local conditions by better educating our public on the value of what we do.  Public Service is “a calling” and she congratulated the graduates on their dedication to our profession.  Ms. Humble received the CPM designation herself in 2001 and has been a passionate advocate of the program since that time. Watch Ms. Humble’s speech, introduced by David Tees, Director of the Texas State CPM Program in Arlington, Texas, at the video link below.
