They named South Bend City Engineer Carl P. Littrell as <br /> "Engineer of the Year" at their annual meeting in Carmel, Ind. <br /> "Carl is a terrific example of the talented, dedicated and selfless staff who work for the <br /> City of South Bend," said Mayor Stephen J. Luecke. "His expertise has helped us to plan <br /> and maintain critical infrastructure that supports new growth and development. He has <br /> overseen numerous projects for the City, saving us many thousands of dollars. We <br /> applaud this recognition by his peers—it is well-deserved." <br /> "I am humbled, honored and quite flattered by this," said Littrell, who, characteristically, <br /> attributed the recognition to his staff, saying "you folks make me look good. No doubt <br /> about it." <br /> Littrell's co-workers say the recognition of Littrell by the leading engineers in the state <br /> was no bluff. <br /> "Carl's generosity of spirit to want to share the honor with the staff is a part of that <br /> character that reflects on why folks would seek to recognize him and his <br /> accomplishment," said Gary Gilot, South Bend's director of public works. "His <br /> professional recognition award is also a positive reflection on the South Bend <br /> community. That Carl should be held in such regard by his peers out of all the city <br />
