Employee of the Month – June 2022

Congratulations to Mrs. Cynthia Johnson !

Cynthia has been an asset to the State Court Criminal Division since her days as a temporary employee. She consistently has demonstrated her ability to complete all tasks assigned with a very low error rate. Cynthia is a go-to person for her co-workers, assisting with inquiries regarding tasks. She is never idle. This is demonstrated by her assisting co-workers with their work loads and assisting the Manager with projects, such as raising our State ranking with GCIC for clearing time restricted records. She is self-motivated. For example, in her “spare time” she initiates checking on cases and citations that are still pending that normally have been dispositioned by that point in time. She determines why and who needs to be informed, so they can be closed. Also, Cynthia is not hesitant to take on new responsibilities. She has taken on more court sessions within the last year. These are just a few reasons why she deserves to the Employee of the Month for June.

Congratulations Cynthia!!

Employee of the Month – April 2022

Congratulations to Mrs. Teresa Smith!

Teresa Smiths dedication, strong work ethic and reliability. This young lady begins her day at 7:30 AM each morning ensuring that the office is set up for the workday. Her normal routine is to come in and start the computers to make certain they are readily accessible for the citizens. Many days I have witnessed her sitting quietly at her desk focused on her work ensuring that every dot is dotted and every “T” is crossed. Not only does she have an excellent work ethic she is also reliable. If our manager is out of the office she assumes the role of manager and provides guidance to her counterparts. Her dedication has been simply shown through her 30 years of dedication to the Clerk of Courts Office. We enjoy her each and every day from her quick wit to her infectious laughter and of course the pounding on the desk! She will be missed when she’s gone!”
