Kendrick of Monroe City, Missouri was presented with the Enduring Service
Volunteer Award at the Columbia Bass Pro Shop. The award was presented by
Greg Miller, Chairperson for the Corps Foundation and David Smith
representing the Bass Pro Shop. The Bass Pro Shop donated a monetary award
and Bass Pro gift certificate for the awardee.
The Enduring Service Volunteer Award was established in January 2016 by the
nonprofit Corps of Engineers Natural Resources Education Foundation, doing
business as The Corps Foundation. The Corps Foundation is the only
nationwide nonprofit organization dedicated exclusively to supporting our
nation's lakes, rivers and their many resources. Our mission is to engage
the public to ensure the environmental health and recreational enjoyment of
our nation's lakes, lands and waterways administered by USACE.
Bob Kendrick has been selected as the first Corps Foundation "Enduring
Service" awardee. He was selected for the exceptional quality and impact of
his volunteer work at Mark Twain Lake in Monroe City, MO. Bob's dedicated
effort united the community to provide thousands of hours of volunteer
service and the necessary resources to support annual special events
including the Mark Twain Lake Deer Hunt for People with Disabilities, the
Youth Shed Antler Hunt, Earth Day Special Event, and National Public Lands
Day event. His advocacy on behalf of the Mark Twain Lake Region helped to
secure resources to develop the M.W. Boudreaux Memorial Visitor Center
Campus, a premier educational facility serving visitors to Mark Twain Lake.
Bob's outstanding volunteer endeavors over a period of 28 years exemplify
the type and quality of volunteer service for which the Enduring Service
Award was established. Bob was selected from an impressive group of
individuals nominated for their continued service and accomplishments at US
Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) projects throughout the United States.
