Huge recognition to an amazing professional!
Cecília Müller will receive the St. Stephen's Commemorative Medal
The state chief physician Cecília Müller will be awarded the St. Stephen's Commemorative Medal and Prize, the members of the Board of Civil Recognition announced on Friday in Székesfehérvár.
Bishop Antal Spányi, Chairman of the Board of Civil Recognition, said that when the award was founded in 2004, the aim was to emphasize the values of St. Stephen so that the award would be given to people who can set an example to the entire Hungarian society with their lives and activities.
He was pleased that András Cser-Palkovics, the mayor of Székesfehérvár, also mentioned the recognition as the most valuable civil award of the city, which according to Antal Spányi means that the leaders of the city also consider the values of St. Stephen to be followed.
The work of this year's award winner, Cecília Müller, a national chief medical officer, has rightly earned recognition throughout Hungarian society, the chairman of the board of trustees emphasized.
He called the ex officio chief doctor's standing at the time of the coronavirus epidemic exemplary, and also highlighted that in 2010 he also managed the red mud disaster response as a regional chief medical officer.
Cecilia Müller's human standing, Christian creed, professional knowledge and sacrificial activities all made her worthy of the St. Stephen's Commemorative Medal and Award, said Antal Spányi.
József Horváth Csurgai, the director of the city archives, said that the prestigious civil recognition would be presented for the seventeenth time.
Most recently, last year, Richard Korzenszky received a retired suffix from the Benedictine abbey in Tihany.
Cecilia Müller was unanimously nominated for the award by the members of the board of trustees this year, he added.
The recognition will be presented on Tuesday in Székesfehérvár.
