The Office of Fossil Energy (FE) would like to congratulate three of our staff members for receiving the distinguished Secretary of Energy’s Achievement Award last week.

Presented by Secretary of Energy Rick Perry, the award recognizes staff for outstanding achievements that go above and beyond in fulfilling the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) mission and serving the nation. Secretary Perry presented several awards during a ceremony held at DOE headquarters in Washington, D.C., last week.

FE’s Natenna Dobson, Alethea Carter, and Ray Ortiz all received the achievement award as members of the 2017 Hurricane Response Team. The team received recognition for providing outstanding support to federal emergency response efforts in 2017––including during the 2017 hurricane season. In particular, DOE played an integral role in helping the United States   respond to and recover from energy disruption emergencies resulting from the impacts of severe hurricanes affecting the East and Gulf Coasts.

Congratulations to Natenna, Alethea, and Ray, and thank you for all your hard work.
