Citizen Volunteer of the Year and Outstanding Employee of the Year
This year, for the first time, Pender County sponsored an award program for Citizen Volunteer of the Year and Outstanding Employee of the Year.
Nominees for Citizen Volunteer of the Year must have lived in Pender County for at least one year. They must also have projected a positive image and shown concern for the community by exhibiting leadership and participating in local projects to improve the quality of life.
This year’s winner was Mrs. Leslie Andrews of Hampstead. She is a school bus driver and cafeteria worker. She and her children from bus #214 participate in food drives during the year, take up money to buy Christmas presents for families in need, and collect beverage pop tabs, which are exchanged for money that is sent to the Ronald McDonald House. She is truly a role model for children and adults alike.
Nominees for the Outstanding Employee of the Year must have consistently provided a high quality of work; taken initiative to make things better by going above and beyond their required duties; demonstrated ethical and professional behavior and exceptional dependability; served as a role model through positive interactions with customers and co-workers; exhibited a positive attitude, inspiring others to excel; and cooperatively worked through problems offering solutions in a professional manner, treating problems as opportunities.
Earl Moore encompasses all of the above. He is the Web Administrator in the County’s IT department and displays leadership and a willingness to help on a daily basis. He can be counted on to see a project through to the very end, with no complaining. Earl is conscientious, truthful and helpful to his co-workers; he genuinely cares about other people.
