Award Winner Profile

Jason Knight and David Gray
2016 Beacon Award Recipient

    Jason Knight is the Recreation Planner, for the USACE Tulsa District, following service as a Natural Resource Park Ranger at the Alatoona Lake Office, Mobile District. His efforts have national impact.

Rangers can access emergency contacts, Corps regulations, hunting/lake maps, shoreline management applications, flood elevation information, citation/warning history, and more are while in the field, and can share important information with visitors. His work in expanding partnerships and encouraging volunteerism have also made major impacts, including expansion of disc golf courses at USACE sites and partnership-based campground renovation and repair work to mitigate the impacts of flooding.
