OKMULGEE, Okla. (AP) — The Department of Interior has honored a retired city of Okmulgee employee for her work in historic preservation.

Dana Sigmon was one of four government employees from across the nation awarded the Secretary of the Interior Historic Preservation Award. The award recognizes outstanding contributions to the preservation of historic places and artifacts.

Sigmon was the community development director for the city of Okmulgee. In that role, she was responsible for building inspection, planning and zoning matters and historic preservation.

In addition to Sigmon, employees from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the Idaho State Historic Preservation Office and the Navajo Nation's Historic Preservation Office were honored.
