Three long-term Fremont County employees who are retiring received recognition in the form of official resolutions by the Board of County Commissioners during regular session on Dec. 26.
Department of Human Services Director Steve Clifton, DHS Agency Administrator Linda Smith, and Denise Miller all were recognized with a cumulative total of almost 80 years of work at Fremont County.
Clifton began work with Fremont County DHS on Feb. 1, 1994, and had almost 49 years of work and dedication to the field of human services. Smith, a valued employee since Oct. 1, 1987, provided the county with behind-the-scenes expertise in human services and its financial intricacies. Miller worked in various positions throughout the County, including at the Administration Building and at DHS, since Sept. 4, 1991, and retired from her final position at DHS.
All three were honored by the Commissioners for their decades of dedicated service and for making a difference in the lives of Fremont County citizens.
“Thank you,” said Board Chair Debbie Bell. “You will be missed.”
Clifton and Smith worked over the past year on completing a formal transition plan to provide a smooth and seamless shift when incoming Director Stacie Kwitek and her team officially take over on Jan. 1, 2018.
