CORPUS CHRISTI -- Congratulations are in order for a local researcher. Donna Shaver just a received a big award.
It's the 2012 National Park Service Directors Natural Resource Research Award.
Shaver got the recognition after being compared to peers in her region then nationwide.
The nomination comes from her peers and that makes this award that much more special to Shaver.
"They don't have such a thing as a Lifetime Achievement Award, but, this would be about as close as you can come in this particular field," Shaver said.
By the way, the National Park Service named the recipients in March, but because of sequestration, Shaver and 5 other recipients could not travel to accept them.
They did have a smaller service this week in Colorado, where Shaver picked up her recognition.
