Vicksburg and Warren County is blessed to have some amazing government facilities and some incredibly talented individuals who work at those locations.

One such place is the Vicksburg District of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, which has been recognized for the second consecutive year as the best place to work in the Corps, according the 2017 Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey.

This year, according to the survey’s website, 485,000 federal employees participated in the survey.

The Vicksburg District is one of 41 Corps districts worldwide and one of six districts in the Corps’ Mississippi Valley Division. It has 1,000 employees.

A certificate of honor citing the designation was presented to Col. Michael C. Derosier, Vicksburg District commander, and Patricia Hemphill, chief of Programs and Project Management Division, at the First Quarter Executive Governance Meeting in Pittsburgh, Pa.

“We were both very proud to represent each and every one of the district leadership in being recognized as the highest scoring Best Place to Work large district in USACE,” Derosier said.

Derosier commended the district leadership and employees for making it “a flagship district within the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.”

We, too, would like to join in that applause for a job well done and thank you for making Vicksburg and Warren County your home.

Here’s to making it three years in a row.
