In October, the Fulton County Conservation District Board of Directors recognized watershed specialist Scott Alexander for his 10 years of outstanding service to the Conservation District. When Alexander began his career in October of 2001, he had high expectations and big ideas about making a difference in Fulton County – a place he loves and is proud to call home.

Alexander has worked tirelessly in promoting the goals and objectives of the district’s watershed conservation program and has been successful in obtaining nearly $1 million in grant funds to support various stream-restoration projects throughout the county. His dedication has been a driving force in the district’s efforts to restore and enhance the water quality of Fulton County streams, including sections of Big Cove Creek and Spring Run.

He possesses many personal qualities that have contributed to his success: integrity, confidence, excellent communication skills, an ability to work in cooperation with others and a high degree of professionalism. Alexander makes a strong, positive impression on all who come in contact with him. He views problems as opportunities, and he focuses on achieving results in the face of many obstacles – programs being cut, funding slashed, dwindling grant money, a mountain of paperwork and politics.

Despite all of these obstacles, he has persevered and accomplished a long and impressive list of achievements doing what he loves to do in his own backyard. Alexander embodies the spirit of conservation, and for that, the Conservation District is extremely fortunate and proud to have him here in Fulton County.
