Assistant City Administrator Sharon Stott was named the 2018 recipient of the Missouri City Managers Association’s [MCMA] Richard Noll Outstanding Assistant Award. The award was presented to Stott at the MCMA Annual Spring Conference on Wednesday, May 2.
The annual award recognizes assistant city administrators who exhibit strong leadership, are active in professional and governmental organizations and committees, and initiate activities designed to enhance or improve the organization’s performance and service capabilities. In considering Stott for this award, the MCMA reviewed her public service history, record of achievements and demonstrated leadership skills.
Stott began her employment with the city in 2011 as its public information officer and management analyst. She was promoted to assistant to the city administrator in 2013, then to assistant city administrator in 2017.
“Sharon’s willingness to take on a variety of special projects exemplifies her natural ability to lead and problem solve,” Creve Coeur Mayor Barry Glantz said. “I have witnessed firsthand Sharon’s ambition and commitment to public service, and I am delighted to see her get recognized by the MCMA for all of her hard work.”
Stott is credited with finding ways to improve the city’s capital improvement plan, helping to develop the city’s strategic plan and working to add solar panels to the Dielmann Recreation Complex. Additionally, she has served on the city’s horticulture, ecology and beautification committee, addressing environmental sustainability issues facing the city.
