Several Greene County employees were honored by the County Commission as “Top Branch” winners for December 2018.
Connie Yen. Yen was honored for her work raising the archives of the county to a national standard. Yen oversaw the reorganization and history preservation of the county Archives making them more accessible to the public.
Hannah Porter. Porter is a juvenile probation officer and coordinator of the GEMS (Girls Empowering Minds and Spirits) program. She was honored for her work in relationship building between families and youth of Greene County and county staff along with the positive connections she built with staff, peers and members of the community.
Kate Morris. Morris is the Chief Executive Assistant to the Commission Office and was the key person responsible for the conversion of Commission Office archives to a paperless process. Hailed as doing work “far above and beyond her normal duties”, the overhaul put in place by Morris cut paper and ink usage in half and eliminated the need for Archives to pick up large boxes of documents for re-filing as they can all be transferred electronically.
Rick Artman. Artman is the Greene County Highway Administrator and has been with the department since 2003. The county commission saluted Artman for his management of the department and his continuing concern for the well-being of his employees both on the job and in their overall lives.
