Entry Description
The DNR Division of Fish & Wildlife recently honored several employees with Awards of Excellence for 2013.

Dan Jessup, hatchery manager at Cikana State Fish Hatchery in Martinsville, earned Biologist of the Year for improving hatchery productivity, for overseeing a program that teaches inmates at Terre Haute’s federal prison to grow fish that are used to improve urban fishing, and for teaching aquaculture to the Indiana National Guard in an effort to help Afghanistan recover from war.

Greg Leer, a laborer at Pigeon River Fish & Wildlife Area in Mongo, earned Field Technician of the Year for his experience, leadership and dedication to improving wildlife habitat. In his 37-year career, Leer has planted more than half-a-million seedlings, and helped establish and maintain hundreds of acres of grassland.

Bill Bean, regional supervisor of north public lands stationed in Peru, earned Mentor of the Year for his willingness to share his wisdom and advice with everyone in DNR, even those who are not technically under his supervision.

Gary Langell, private lands program manager stationed in Bloomington, earned Program Manager of the Year for his “can-do attitude,” problem solving, professionalism and his ability to handle a wide range of responsibilities.

Denise Reust, office manager at Roush Fish & Wildlife Area in Huntington, earned Secretary of the Year for raising money for property events, thereby decreasing the cost to the State of Indiana, and for training employees across the state on purchasing procedures.

Members of the fisheries districts 4, 5 and 6, the southern fisheries research team, and big rivers unit were recognized for sampling Patoka Lake for bass, a project that included 72 locations on the 8,800-acre reservoir.
