Demonstrates Extraordinary Service to the Public
Dedicated to Fulfilling USDA’s Mission

When it comes to recognizing NRCS Civil Engineering Technician Michael Rosado as an Unsung Hero, all the boxes are checked. It’s a no-brainer. He’s an employee of the highest caliber. He loves what he does and isn’t shy about who knows it! He takes pride in his work, and will talk about the agency to anyone who will listen.

One can’t help but wonder if it was fate that in 1985―one year after Rosado began his career with what was then the Soil Conservation Service―the Unsung Hero Award Program was created. It’s as if they were fulfilling a prophecy.

Rosado was hired in 1984 and assigned to the State Office engineering staff. While his official title is civil engineering technician, he also performs a great deal of engineering and conservation planning work. Over the years, Rosado’s willingness to take on additional responsibilities has transformed his position making him Connecticut’s go-to guy.  Read more >>

When it comes to jobs, Kevin Guinn’s son said his dad won the lottery. That’s not because Kevin’s job is easy, but because it’s a perfect match, and Kevin gives it his all.

Kevin, state range management specialist with USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), is the driving force behind the agency’s sage grouse conservation efforts in Washington State. NRCS is working side-by-side with ranchers and conservation partners to proactively conserve habitat for the iconic Western bird.

Kevin is known for his humble, roll-up-his sleeves approach. And his hard work has not gone unnoticed. This year, he is one of only a handful of USDA employees nationally to receive the USDA Unsung Hero Award. Read more >>
