Juvenile center honors workers
The South Lake Tahoe Juvenile Treatment Center recently conducted its employee awards ceremony honoring two outstanding staff members who received the Probation Counselor of the Year and Probation Employee of the Year awards for 2004.
The awards were presented by Assistant Chief Probation Officer Barney Scholl, the juvenile treatment center’s first superintendent.
The 2004 Probation Counselor of the Year award was presented to Carrie Casey, who is one of the original probation counselors assigned to the juvenile treatment center upon its opening in South Lake Tahoe in 2004.
Within her first year on the job Casey was selected for promotion within the probation department to senior probation counselor and has provided a leadership role within the facility.
The Probation Employee of the Year award was presented to Kelly Spears. The probation department has employed Spears as a legal office assistant II and administrative secretary since January 2002.
She was promoted within the department to her current assignment at the juvenile treatment center in 2004 and is responsible for a number of different responsibilities within the support services section.
Spears previously earned this award in 2002 when assigned to the South Lake Tahoe Probation Office.
Probation department staff thanks and congratulates both of the award recipients for their service to the community and professionalism.
