Public Services employees receive awards

   As part of its celebration of National Public Works Week, the Georgetown County Department of Public Services recognized several of its outstanding employees during an event on May 25. Three awards were presented: The Team Player Award went to Seamen Linen, the Leadership Award to Harley Walker, and the Green Earth Award was presented to the entire Facilities Services Division.

    Linen received the Team Player Award due to his commitment helping his colleagues. “He is always eager to help and assist his crew and others when called upon,” said Jacob Nesmith, who presented the award. Linen joined the county six years ago and has since been promoted to area supervisor. 

    Walker joined the Stormwater Division less than a year ago, during a time when several key positions became vacant. “These changes created a vacuum, which required some changes within the department and for some personnel to step up,” Nesmith said. Walker did just that, earning herself the Leadership Award. She was originally hired as an administrative assistant, but is now the billing and office coordinator for the Stormwater Division, and is considered a vital member of the team. 

    The Facilities Services Division became the first in the county to add electric vehicles to its fleet. It was a process that took several years and required persistence, Nesmith said. “Pursuing sustainability is important throughout the county, and the Department of Public Services felt it was worthy to recognize this division,” he added.
