Join Us in Celebration!
The Dexter C. White Memorial 5K Walk/Run in memory of the late Dexter C. White, Deputy Commissioner of the Department of Public Works will officially kick off National Public Works Week 2014 for the
City of Atlanta.
An avid runner, Commissioner White encouraged living a healthy lifestyle. The City Atlanta benefitted tremendously from Commissioner White’s work ethic and professional experience. Under his direction, Public Works established its first sustainability initiatives in fleet management with the implementation of compressed natural gas vehicles, electric charging stations, and combined routes for solid waste pick-up services.
Mr. White was a leader in the field of public works and recipient of numerous professional accolades. He was a very active member of the American Public Works Associationand was an established leader in the Solid Waste Association of North America, and the National Forum of Black Public Administrators.
The City of Atlanta Department of Public Works has partnered with the Dexter C. White Memorial Committee to kick off National Public Works Week with the DCW Memorial 5K Run/Walk. Proceeds from this inaugural 2014 event will benefit an educational fund for his children.
