R. Christopher Goodwin & Associates, Inc. (RCG&A) recognized by Louisiana Lt. Governor Jay Dardenne and the Louisiana Office of Cultural Development as Archaeologist of the Year as part of a larger Dewberry team.

The award recognizes RCG&A's efforts to highlight and refine the rich cultural resources of Louisiana, and follows the firm's contribution to implementing the Federal Emergency Management Agency's (FEMA) Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP) in Louisiana.

RCG&A's work was part of FEMA's fulfillment of the Programmatic Agreement between the agency and the State of Louisiana following Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, and represented one of the largest single-project contributions to Louisiana archaeology. The Dewberry team performed archaeological surveys of Fontainebleau State Park and New Orleans' City Park; researched more than 200 parks around New Orleans, conducting archaeological investigations at 30 parks; analyzed eleven archaeological collections that had not been previously examined or were not analyzed using modern methods; scanned more than 150,000 National Register and Standing Structure documents; and surveyed seven New Orleans National Register Historic Districts.
