As friends, family and co-workers looked on, Kenny McCain received the 2014 Refuge Employee of the Year Award from the National Wildlife Refuge Association. David Houghton, President of the NWRA, presented the award at a low country boil luncheon at the St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge. McCain recently retired for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service after 25 years doing law enforcement. Jim Kurth, Chief of the National Wildlife Refuge System, noted this was the first time a federal wildlife officer has received the Refuge Employee of the Year Award.
FWS and NWRA officials were taken on a tour of part of the Refuge during their visit and spent some time talking to staff members.
