Byron Bunker '92 was selected as a finalist for the Samuel J. Heyman Service to America Medal, presented by the Partnership for Public Service, a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization in Washington, D.C., that works to revitalize the federal government by inspiring a new generation to serve and by transforming the way government works.  

Each year, the Partnership pays tribute to America's dedicated federal workforce through the Samuel J. Heyman Service to America Medals program. In early May, 26 finalists were announced for 2017, including Bunker, a 1992 graduate of Texas A&M with a degree in mechanical engineering.

Bunker is director of the Compliance Division at the Environmental Protection Agency. He is part of a team being recognized for halting a scheme by Volkswagen to evade emission standards, and helped secure a record $17.4 billion in legal settlements to compensate car owners and fund projects that will reduce harmful pollution across the country.
