Guest Article by Susan Strawbridge, Park Services Specialist,  Ellie Schiller Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park

Two employees at the Department of Environmental Protection’s Ellie Schiller Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park received special recognition for their contributions during the park staff's annual holiday party on December 8, 2013.

Park Manager Kim Tennille presented the Walt Elliot award for public service to Tricia Fowler, a Park Services Specialist; and the Russel Parks award for Employee of the Year to Olivia Morrison, a Park Ranger in the Wildlife Care Department.

Walt Elliot award winner Tricia Fowler does an outstanding job in coordinating the Park’s extensive volunteer program and outreach programs. She also coordinates several of the Park’s major annual events including the Celebration of Lights, Haunted Tram Rides and Wildlife Ranger Camps.

Russel Parks award winner Olivia Morrison works in the Wildlife Department and does an excellent job with wildlife care, interpretive programs and will be the Park’s CPR trainer. In nominating Olivia, one of her co-workers said, “She is one of the most dependable staff members, is always respectful to others, and is always willing to help.”

The Walt Elliott Public Service Award was established in 1997 to recognize employees who demonstrate exemplary public service to colleagues, park visitors and the community.
The Russel Parks Award was established in 1990 to recognize employees that are dependable, reliable and who frequently go unrecognized for the work they do. Fellow employees nominate their co-workers for these awards.
