Grand Teton National Park’s management assistant Gary Pollock received the Department of the Interior’s Meritorious Service Award during a recent management team assembly with retiring Superintendent Mary Gibson Scott at park headquarters in Moose, Wyoming.  As the second highest honor bestowed by the Secretary of the Interior, the Meritorious Service Award is given to employees who make exceptional and continuing contributions to the Department or one of its bureaus. Interior Secretary Sally Jewell noted that Pollock earned this award, for his significant contributions to improve protection of Grand Teton National Park’s natural and cultural resources and the development of external partnerships.  Pollock has served an active part in the acquisition of private inholdings within the park. He played a key role in developing the agreement signed in 2010 by the Secretary of the Interior and Governor of Wyoming to purchase 1,406 acres of state-owned school trust lands within Grand Teton. In addition, Pollock was instrumental in developing the 2007 Transportation Plan/Environmental Impact Statement that resulted in construction of 14.5 miles of multi-use pathways in Grand Teton, including a pathway connection to the town of Jackson, Wyoming.

  • Bigger trucks aren’t always better - August 19, 2014

But the Nissan Frontier, despite its size, is no less truck than the Nissan […]
