Grand Teton Superintendent Awarded

Mary Gibson Scott

Grand Teton National Park Superintendent Mary Gibson Scott has been recognized during the annual George B. Hartzog, Jr. Environmental Awards Program ceremony earlier this month at Clemson University for exemplary leadership in addressing several environmental issues and concerns. Scott received the 2013 Fran P. Mainella Award for sustained and innovative achievement by a woman in the management of North America’s natural, historic or cultural heritage.  Specifically, Superintendent Scott was recognized for several projects totaling approximately $150-million in managing one of the most beloved and high-profile national parks. These projects included: construction of the Craig Thomas Discovery and Visitor Center, the conveyance and public opening of the Laurance S. Rockefeller Preserve, and the renovation of Grand Teton’s headquarters campus through American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.
