Army Honors QC Civilian Executive


A Moline man has been honored by the Army for his work for the Army Sustainment Command. Last week in Washington, Michael Hutchison received the Presidential Rank Award for Meritorious Executive.

Hutchison serves as deputy to the commanding general of the ASC on Arsenal Island, and is the highest-ranking civilian employee at the command. 

He's one of 130 federal executives who received the award, representing just one per cent of those eligible.

A native of Detroit, Herb Trix began his radio career as a country-western disc jockey in Roswell, New Mexico (“KRSY, your superkicker in the Pecos Valley”), in 1978. After a stint at an oldies station in Topeka, Kansas (imagine getting paid to play “Louie Louie” and “Great Balls of Fire”), he wormed his way into news, first in Topeka, and then in Freeport Illinois.
