Every year, select individuals from all Federal agencies in Minnesota are recognized as Civil Servant of the Year for their superior performance and dedicated Federal service. Here is Dr. DeRonne's nomination:

Beth DeRonne works as a Pharmacist on several CCDOR studies, and knows how to get things done at the VA.  She is kind as she answers questions about side-effects or strategies the vets might use to quit smoking or deal with their pain. Recently, a veteran had called and was uncomfortable due to changes in the his medications and had not been sleeping well. He was in pain and was thinking of killing himself. While keeping the veteran on the phone, Beth alerted a coworker and continued to assist with the emergency staff until they could get him safely out of his house. Beth calmly explained why this was necessary, answered his questions and diffused the situation.
