Service awards are for county employees who have reached a milestone this year. “We had over 230 employees receive awards this year including seven that hit 25 years and three that have been with the county for 30 years,” Ross said.
Department Directors and Elected Officials receiving awards this year included: Scott Mabery, Juvenile Court Services Director (25 years); John C Morris, Chief Adult Probation Officer (20 years); Dan Cherry, Flood Control District Director (20 years); Leslie Horton, Community Health Services Director (15 years); Donna McQuality, Clerk of Superior Court (15 years); Wendy Ross, Human Resources and Risk Management Director (15 years); and Leslie Hoffman, Yavapai County Recorder (5 years).
Board of Supervisors Chairman Thomas Thurman said, “We are very proud of the fact that so many talented employees have chosen to make Yavapai County, not just the place they come to work, but the place they invest their time and talents in. They do this in order to make the county they call home a better place for everyone, and I am grateful that so many of them have been with us.”
