DCNR Recognizes Employees Going Above And Beyond To Support Agency Mission

The Department of Conservation and Natural Resources recently recognized more than 40 employees for once again going above and beyond their normal responsibilities to further the goals of the agency.

They were rewarded by being recognized by their peers and supervisors for efforts, including:

-- Accomplishing critical daily duties

-- Taking the lead in emergency situations

-- Assisting with criminal investigations

-- Coordinating educational programming to better connect the public with nature

-- Launching online tools to support DCNR partners, grantees, and the public

“The annual DCNR employee recognition awards shed light on recent important efforts coming from our agency, and highlight the individuals and teams driving this great work,” said DCNR Secretary Cindy Adams Dunn. “Our employees are enthusiastic, professional, and passionate, and I’m proud to lead such a strong, forward-thinking team.”

More than 40 employees received 18 awards personally by Dunn at the 2018 awards ceremony in the Rachel Carson State Office Building in Harrisburg.

Dunn was joined by Deputy Secretary for Parks and Forestry, John Norbeck, Deputy Secretary for Conservation and Technical Services, Lauren Imgrund, and Deputy Secretary for Administration, Michael Walsh.

Employees recognized were nominated by their superiors and selected by a screening committee of coworkers.
