Jerry Carr was recognized at the June 2009 monthly of the Oklahoma Conservation Commission for five years of service to OCC and the state.
Jerry joined OCC's Water Quality division in May 2004 after receiving a B.S. degree in Biology from East Central University in Ada. He is one of seven principal WQ staff who monitor streams statewide. He had previously worked in the concrete construction and cabinetry industries.
Shanon Phillips, OCC/WQ director, said Jerry's experience, beyond his formal education, helps with the constant need for improvisation in the day-to-day field monitoring tasks.
"Jerry can troubleshoot, repair or solve most any problem with monitoring equipment as well as construct or install new equipment," Phillips said.
Jerry resides in Edmond with his wife and teenaged son and daughter. He enjoys anthropology and outdoor recreation including fishing and barbecuing.
