Doris Patterson named Rockdale County 2013 Employee of the Year

CONYERS, Ga. – The Rockdale County Board of Commissioners announced Tuesday the selection of Doris Patterson as the County’s Employee of the Year for 2013. Patterson was surprised with news of the award at the BOC’s work session, which was met with great applause and support from her family and colleagues.

Patterson is the Deputy Director of the County’s Department of Human Resources. She was selected out of four finalists as the individual who best exemplified exceptional customer service, outstanding initiative and operational effectiveness during the 2013 calendar year.

Rockdale County Water Resources Director Dwight Hicks nominated Patterson for the award. He wrote in his submission:

Ms. Patterson’s commitment to and leadership of the wellness initiative was evident not only by her words but also her participation and advocacy of employee health and wellness programs. Employee testimonials and increased participation make it clear that many employees benefited from the effort led, encouraged and championed by Ms. Patterson. She demonstrates tireless effort to excellence in standards and service, all in addition to her normal HR operational and oversight responsibilities, and is an outstanding candidate for this award.

The BOC also recognized and congratulated the other award finalists: Carmella Williams, MIS; Susan O’Neil-Roberts, Recreation and Maintenance; and Dondra Moss, Juvenile Court.
