The St. Paul District presents this annual award to the top three or four of its 700 employees. McGarvey, a 15-year Corps of Engineers employee, serves as a technical lead in the engineering and construction division.

“I’m so pleased that Renee has been honored for her hard work in the engineering and construction division,” said James Sentz, McGarvey’s supervisor. “Day in and day out, her great leadership and design skills are on display. She has done excellent work as technical lead for the Fargo-Moorhead flood mitigation project and coordination with our external partners.”

McGarvey received the award at the 45th Annual Minnesota Federal Civil Servant of the Year awards banquet in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota, May 3.
