In 2016, MassMEP created the John Healy Leadership Award to recognize excellence and honor, within manufacturing companies and individual manufacturing leaders, that are shaping the future of global manufacturing. This award is in honor of MassMEP's former President and leader, John "Jack" Healy. Jack was the leader of MassMEP from 1997-2016. During his tenure he changed the way manufacturing is perceived and was often referred to as the "Voice of Manufacturing." His role with MassMEP and passion for the industry was the catalyst in shaping the direction of manufacturing in Massachusetts.
Congressman Jim McGovern
The Congressman was born and raised in the Burncoat neighborhood of Worcester. The values he learned from his friends and family are the same ones he fights for every day in Congress: fairness, decency, respect for all people, and the idea that each of us has an obligation to give back to our community. Jim’s parents, Walter and Mindy, own a small package store in Worcester, and his sisters are both public school teachers. He is married to Lisa Murray McGovern and they have two children, Patrick and Molly.
