Conservation agent receives honorary trooper award

By Heartland News

STE. GENEVIEVE, MO (KFVS) - A Ste. Genevieve man received an honorary trooper award Thursday.

Collegues, friends and family surprised conservation agent Rob Sulkowski with the honorary trooper award.

The award celebrates Agent Sulkowski's heroic act during the May 8th storms.

Sulkowski says part of Interstate 55 was closed due to flooding that day, and a woman hydroplaned into the flooded median.

"Rushed over there.  Craig reached the vehicle first, Trooper Craig.  He had the door open.  I held the door for him while she was climbing out," Sulkowski said.  "He helped her pull out.  And I remember the vehicle, just kind of putting my weight on it to hold it up.  I'm not a little guy, so it wasn't too tough.  But he got her out, carried her out so she never got wet which is pretty neat."

Sulkowski has been a conservation agent since 1997 and has received numerous awards during his career, including Missouri's Agent of the Year.

He says the honorary trooper award is a huge surprise and honor.
