Department of Probation, Parole and Pardon Services Administrative (SCDPPPS) Support Staff Person of the Year from SCDPPPS Kershaw County Agent-in-Charge Laurin Mullins (left) and SCDPPPS Regional Director Margarette Parrish.

 

Doing her best at work each day is what Kershaw County Human Services Specialist Carlene Glenn said made her fit for her recent recognition as the S.C. Department of Probation, Parole and Pardon Services’ (SCDPPPS) Administrative Support Staff Person of the Year.

Glenn has worked for the SCDPPPS for 19 years, and has worked for the state for a total of 30 years.

Glenn attended Robert E. Lee Academy in Bishopville and Central Carolina Technical College. She is married to Tim Glenn and they have two sons, the late Miles Glenn and Carl Glenn of Lugoff.

Nominated by her supervisor, Kershaw County Agent-in-Charge Laurin Mullins, Glenn is one of three people in the state to receive the title this year.

An awards committee consisting of nine people from different areas in the state from the 46 total offices looked over nomination forms, and then narrowed its choices down to finalists. Glenn learned she was a finalist Sept. 30.

“When they told me, I was excited and humbled at the same time because I know there are other people in the agency who deserve it just as much as me,” Glenn said.

Mullins said Glenn possesses all the qualities making a person qualified to receive such an honor.

“Carlene is a dedicated employee who does her work hoping to make a difference in people’s lives,” Mullins said. “That may mean she helps someone who reports to our office as part of a court order, or it may be the person working in the office next to her. Not only does she complete tasks assigned to her, she stops her work to aid others when asked. She is well-liked and respected within the department and among other agencies. She is known for her job knowledge and willingness to go above and beyond what is required.”

Winners were honored at the state office in Columbia this month. Glenn and her fellow awardees received a plaque and check.

“(Carlene) is performing a critical service for the people of South Carolina and reflects extremely well on our department,” SCDPPPS Director Kela E. Thomas said.

Mullins is excited someone in her office received the honor and is glad the awards committee was able to see the “greatness in Carlene” she and other employees see every day.

“We are proud of Carlene and we know she earned this award this year, and in the many years before this,” Mullins said. “I have been in the Kershaw County Office since 2001, and Carlene has always been one of the best employees I could ever hope to share my workload with day in and day out.”
