Lennetta Loman-Greene recognized by BOCC


    The Jackson County Board of County Commissioners appreciates their employees and works hard to recognize them for a job well done. At the regularly scheduled meeting Tuesday, they took time out to thank Lennetta Loman-Greene as their employee of the month. Ironically, this was Greene’s last county commission meeting due to her impending retirement this month.
    Greene was given a certificate and a day off. Greene began her career with the Board of Commissioners October 21, 1993 and 23 years later she is headed for retirement.
    A very tearful Greene spoke following the presentation, “I would like to say thank you for allowing me to be a part of this organization. I have enjoyed working with board members, I have enjoyed working with my colleagues and I’d like to say this is a wonderful bonus and the people make it even better. I wish you all well.” Greene was greeted with a standing ovation by all present.
    Commissioner Jim Peacock praised Greene, “I appreciate all of your hard work. You have been a great asset to Jackson County and I am sure there are a lot of taxpayers who appreciate all the hard work that you have put in and I thank you.”
    Commissioner Chuck Lockey and Greene go way back, “Mrs. Green, Dr. Spires and I were on the board when we hired you and you done a yeoman’s job working for us the past 14 years (this brought a round of laughter) but thank you very much and I wish you well in your retirement.”
    Commissioner Eric Hill had praise also, “God speed to you Mrs. Greene, I know you have been an asset to myself ever since I came on the Board with Clint and it was a change to go from private sector to public but you were one of the calms in the storm. I thank you personally so much for your patience, the job you did and you did an excellent job as an employee and I wish you the best in retirement.”
    Commissioner Willie Spires continued with praise, “I’d like to say Mrs. Greene I knew you in the private sector as well and you were always very consistent and so thank you so very much.”
    Commissioner Clint Pate didn’t let the opportunity go by, “I know Commissioner Spires and Lockey have known you longer than me and Eric but I do want to thank you for all the hard work you’ve done in keeping us all straight. Good luck in your next endeavor in case you are going home and taking care of the grandkids, well that’s an endeavor too.”
    Congratulations to Mrs. Greene on her retirement and her employee of the month recognition from the staff and publisher of the Jackson County Times.
