The City of Red Deer has announced the recipient of the 2022 Bob Stollings Memorial Award.

Parks and public works manager Greg Sikora, who has worked for the city for 25 years, received the award recently.

“Excellence is the foundation of all that Greg does. He is committed to helping his team achieve shared goals and continues to build a unified team culture, even amongst all of the changes the last two years brought,” said city manager Tara Lodewyk.

“He is a champion for the betterment of our great city. We are all so proud and excited for Greg to receive this award.”

The Bob Stollings Memorial Award is given out each year to a city employee who displays outstanding performance in alignment with the city’s cornerstone values of respect, integrity, service and excellence. It was first established in 1985 and is presented every year to honour Robert (Bob) E. Stollings, a loyal and dedicated City employee form 1960-1984.

Nominations for the award are submitted by fellow coworkers detailing the employee’s achievements professionally and interpersonally, along with letters of support. The award is considered a great honour among City staff.

In a statement, the city said Sikora has been instrumental in the development and implementation of a number of major projects and programs including the Integrated and Accessible Transportation policy, which saw a complete revamp of the city’s snow and ice control standards to ensure community safety and accessibility throughout the winter.

As a leader in the organization, Sikora is known for his exceptional leadership, innovation, mentorship and guidance of his employees, as well as development of team cultures, even through challenges of the pandemic, the city statement said, adding he is a strong advocate for the health and safety of his staff and colleagues, with a focus on the needs and wellness of his team first and foremost.
