Pete Conroy Receives W. Kelly Mosley Environmental Achievement Award

JACKSONVILLE January 26, 2001 -- Jacksonville State University’s Pete Conroy is this year’s recipient of the W. Kelly Mosley Environmental Achievement Award, which was established to recognize environmental achievements in forestry, wildlife and related natural resource areas in Alabama.

The award was presented during a recent University Forum meeting by state forestry officials Jim Gooder, forest supervisor, national forests in Alabama; Tony Tooke, district ranger, Talladega ranger district; and Earl Stewart, deputy district ranger, Shoal Creek ranger district.

The award is designed to recognize individuals who take a personal interest in natural resources and use their own time, money and energy in the conservation of natural resources with no incentive of professional or personal gain.

Conroy, director of JSU’s environmental policy information center, was cited for accomplishments, including volunteer efforts in connection with Talladega National Forest, environmental education work, involvement with the Pinhoti National Recreation Trail (working toward its designation as a Millennium Legacy Trail), and involvement with the Dugger Wilderness area and the Chief Ladiga Trail (the rails-to-trails project).

Tooke said, “Pete is a true champion in the environmental and natural resources conservation community.”
