The Town of Purcellville held its annual Employee Appreciation and Awards Luncheon on June 14, which included recognition of staff members who have reached service anniversary milestones.
At the top of that list was wastewater treatment plant Supervisor Scott House who marked 25 years of service with the town. Maintenance technician Bob Dryden, Director of Finance Liz Krens and wastewater treatment plant operator Toby Small reached 20-year milestones.
House is the town’s longest-tenured active employee and has the third longest employee tenure in town history. “Scott House is an outstanding superintendent. He has provided the Town with professional expertise and leadership that helped navigate the Town through the complex regulatory process for two and half decades,” Interim Town Manager Alex Vanegas stated.
Three individual awards also were presented.
Water treatment plant operator Stacie Alter was named Field Operations Employee of the Year. Sheryl Hood, the operations coordinator in the Department of Public Works, was named Town Hall Employee of the Year.
A new honor, the Robert W. Lohr Jr. Management Excellence Award, was presented to Assistant Town Manager Danny Davis and Interim Public Works Director Dale Lehnig.
