Technology innovator with the City of Red Deer receives top award

Linda Key is described as a “true leader who shows integrity, drive”

A City of Red Deer employee who “helped shape the way the municipality uses technology” was given a top service award.

Linda Key is the winner of this year’s Bob Stollings Memorial Award. Key has been with the Information Technology Services department for 27 years. She’s described as “a true leader who shows integrity, drive and pride in all that she does.”

Key’s collaborative approach and the exemplary service she provides when managing projects and mentoring new employees are some of the strong qualities that made her, according to a city release, “the perfect candidate for this top award.”

Other City of Red Deer employees were also recognized for their years of service and special achievements at the annual Employee Recognition Awards Banquet last week. They were recognized for long service, safety, innovation, leadership and environmental stewardship.

But the highlight was the presentation of the Bob Stollings Memorial Award. Established by City Council in 1985, it is presented to honour Robert (Bob) E. Stollings, a loyal and dedicated employee of The City of Red Deer from 1960 to 1984.
