On June 29, 2005, we had our 9th Annual Awards in Excellence Program.


The purpose of the awards program is to promote job performance excellence and to recognize employees of the USDA/ARS Grassland, Soil and Water Research Laboratory (GSWRL), the TAES Blackland Research Center (BRC), and the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) located in our Temple and Riesel facilities for their contributions.  This annual award is open to all full-time ARS, TAES, and NRCS employees who have worked at the Temple center for two or more years at the time of nomination.


Awards are presented in three categories:


1)      Location Support Employee of the Year;

2)      Technical/Scientific Support Employee of the Year; and

3)      Scientist or Professional Employee of the Year.


One of the winners is from the Natural Resources Unit


           Location Support Employee of the Year - Lynn Grote is a USDA/ARS employee who works at the Grassland Soil & Water Research Lab in Riesel, Texas as an Equipment Operator.


Employees of the three agencies nominate and select the winners for the three categories.


A selection panel is appointed by the Laboratory Director (ARS) and Resident Director (TAES).  The panel evaluates the nominations and recommends a winner in each of the three categories.
