Rockwall Commissioners Recognize Employees of the Quarter

(ROCKWALL, TX — January 25, 2019) The Rockwall County Commissioners Court recognized the Employees of the Quarter along with several other outstanding individuals during its regular meeting on Tuesday, Jan. 22.

Employees of the Quarter/Fourth Quarter 2018

The court joined Rockwall County Sheriff Harold Eavensen in recognizing Officer Christopher Sclafani as Employee of the Quarter. Eavensen spoke to Officer Sclafani’s consistently strong work ethic and group-oriented mindset as a few reasons why he was selected as Employee of the Quarter.

“He’s eager to take on all new tasks as well as new responsibility. He’s constantly looking to improve both himself and the Sheriff’s Office as a whole. Officer Sclafani is one of only a few officers who has gone the duration of his career at the Rockwall County Jail without missing a single hall check or watch and has proven he can be counted on to accomplish any task with great attention to detail,” Eavensen said.

Eavensen also recognized Detention Officers Caroline Small and Erin Klosterman for their actions in saving the life of an inmate attempting suicide in Sept. 2018, as well as Detention Officer Mary Haney and Peace Officer Augusto Espinosa for completing over 100 hours of continued education training in their respective departments.

Also receiving Employee of the Quarter honors was Amanda Webb from the District Clerk’s Office. Webb has worked for the county for 12 years – five years at the District Clerk’s Office. During that time, she was promoted to supervisor of the office’s Civil / Family Department.

“Amanda is an integral part of that department, which is our highest volume department,” said Rockwall County District Clerk Lea Carlson. “Through her work on different projects and her day-to-day work ethic, she has shown that she’s very deserving of this award.”

Recognizing Years of Service to Rockwall County

Continuing its longstanding tradition of honoring retiring elected officials, the court recognized Justice of the Peace Judge Nancy Beaty, Pct. 2, for her years of service to Rockwall County.

“The people who serve as elected officials have to have the initiative to serve, and not everybody gets to that point. It’s one thing to talk about what we’d like to do, but it’s another to put your name on the line and be voted in by the citizens of Rockwall County. Nancy, thank you for your years of service to the citizens of Rockwall County as Justice of the Peace,” said Commissioner David Magness.

Valuable Volunteers of Master Gardeners

The Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service Office of Rockwall County presented a symbolic check to the Commissioners Court for volunteer hours contributed by the Master Gardeners. Through the Extension Service Office, volunteers of the Master Gardeners work with adults and students in schools throughout Rockwall ISD through presentations on gardening techniques and other educational horticulture topics. Volunteers with the Master Gardeners also recently conducted a research project concerning the area between the Rockwall County Courthouse (1111 E. Yellow Jacket Ln.) and the Rockwall County Library on the use of Osmocote versus compost.

“We find that as our community and county continue to move and change, this is something that becomes increasingly more important,” said Todd Williams, agriculture/natural resources agent with the Rockwall AgriLife Extension Service Office.

Williams presented the court with a $71,601 symbolic check representing over 2,900 hours of volunteer service from the Master Gardeners group.
