Selected Winner

The Act: Erin is a person with a remarkable character. She has an extremely high work ethic and independence in her work, but on top of all of that, is a wonderful, thoughtful human-being. Erin thinks of others, shows concern for co-workers, and does what’s necessary to get her job done. She also does small acts of kindness throughout the office, from bringing in a flower for a co-worker to bringing in coffee for others.

Justin portrait

Selected Winner

Justin Duevel is a technician in St. Cloud, Minnesota

The Act: SEH was hired to complete pond inspections to help assess and prioritize pond maintenance. Justin researched, developed, and created a new, innovative way to collect pond data. He used a kayak to collect sonar data and a program that maps aquatic vegetation and bathymetric data. With any new system/process, there were a lot of learning and challenges to work through. Justin did the heavy lifting, coordination, hardware set-up, troubleshooting, trained the intern field staff, gathered missing data and more. This innovative and new process kept the project moving on schedule.
