Mary Goelz presented the award and had the following to say about Lindstrom:
"Katie is the most amazing person this community could ever hope to find. She has worked on more successful projects than seems humanly possible in the years she has been in Pacific County. Her drive and vision has improved the lives of so many, including our staff and the department. I am beyond thankful for all she has done. I am so fortunate to have the opportunity to work with her and learn more from her every day. Thank you, Katie, for being the visionary on this ship and keeping us moving forward."
