Camden County Employees were recognized for their years of service at a ceremony on Thursday December 15, 2022, that also included the announcement of two recipients of the Camden County Shining Star Award. Those honorees included 36 employees that reached a 5, 10, 15, 20, 35, or 40 years of service milestone in 2022.
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 2022 Shining Stars. Alex Harrelson of Facilities Maintenance and the Camden County Public Works Department were selected as the 2022 Shining Stars.
The 63 Employees recognized for reaching a service milestone in 2022 comprise 380 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 this year were recognized at this ceremony.
