Camden County Employees were recognized for their years of service at a ceremony on Tuesday, December 3, 2019, that also included the announcement of two recipients of the Camden County Shining Star Award. Those recognized for their service included 44 employees that reached a 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, or 40 years of service milestone in 2019.
The Shining Star Award offers Camden County employees the opportunity to spotlight the great work accomplished by a co-worker, department, or team of colleagues. This award recognizes and illustrates excellence as a County value. All full and part-time staff, who have been employed at the County for at least one year, and are below the level of director, were eligible to be nominated individually or as a department or team. This year both an individual and a department were selected as the 2019 Shining Stars. Jeannie Pierce of Camden County Fire Rescue and the Camden County Tax Commissioner’s Motor Vehicle Department were selected as the 2019 Shining Stars.
The 44 Employees recognized for reaching a service milestone in 2019, comprise 615 years of service to Camden County. Together, the awardees represent a wide cross-section of the duties and services performed for Camden County residents including: courts, general government, public safety, and public works. These employees represent the knowledge, dedication, and service of all Camden County employees, even though only those reaching a service milestone were recognized at this year’s ceremony.
“We sincerely appreciate the contributions of Camden County employees as they take pride in their service to our citizens,” said County Administrator Steve Howard. “Their efforts are what keep the county running.”
