      It's my honor to share with you that LTG Spellmon has selected Mr. Timothy C. Bischoff (St Louis District), Natural Resources Specialist, as this year's winner of the Hiram M. Chittenden Award for Interpretive Excellence.

      The Chief of Engineer's Hiram M. Chittenden Award for Interpretive Excellence program recognizes outstanding achievement using interpretation to enhance public understanding of the Corps, prompting positive experiences and attitudes, and encouraging voluntary stewardship of natural, cultural and created resources. The other nominees for the Hiram M. Chittenden Award for Interpretive Excellence included: Chelsea Jones (SPD) and Michelle Briggs (LRD).

      All nominees are deserving of recognition for their contributions to the NRM Program, the USACE, and the Nation. Thank you to everyone who participated in the nomination of these exceptional individuals for these awards.
