ST. PAUL, Minn. – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, St. Paul District, selected Prescott, Wis., resident Dawn Linder as one of its four Civil Servants of the Year. 

The St. Paul District presents this award annually to the top three or four of its 650 employees. Linder, who's worked for the Corps of Engineers for more than 36 years, is a contract specialist at the district’s headquarters in St. Paul, Minnesota. 

Linder received this award in recognition of her outstanding leadership abilities, technical competence and professional commitment. “Dawn’s [Linder’s] considerable technical and business competencies have had a tremendous impact throughout the St. Paul District. Her interpersonal and problem-solving skills, teamwork, integrity and customer service are self-evident and these characteristics have led her to her current appointment as a warranted contracting officer,” said Kevin Henricks, the district’s chief of contracting and Linder’s supervisor. “Dawn has been an exceptional role model and leader for the Contracting Division as well as a diligent and caring teacher and mentor”

Linder will receive her award at the 38th Annual Minnesota Federal Civil Servant of the Year Awards in St. Paul, Minn., at the Crown Plaza Hotel May 8th.

The nearly 650 U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, St. Paul District, employees working at more than 40 sites in five upper-Midwest states serve the American public in the areas of environmental enhancement, navigation, flood damage reduction, water and wetlands regulation, recreation sites and disaster response.
