Y-12 Historian Ray Smith, Materials and Chemistry Lab CEO Barry Stephenson and ORNL redevelopment chief Bill Biloski are the latest winners of the Muddy Boot Award from the East Tennessee Economic Council. The awards were presented today at ETEC’s annual celebration luncheon.
Muddy Boots are symbolic of the dedication of those who worked in Oak Ridge during the World War II Manhattan Project, and the awards are presented to individuals who’ve gone “above the call of duty” to help the community, state and nation.
The 2013 Postma Young Professional Medals were presented to Colin and Sherith Colverson, husband and wife, who were recognized for their commitment to the community service and prospering careers.
