Current Employee of the Quarter

We would like to congratulate the winner(s) of the Employee of the Quarter are Stephanie Stair and Brandon Floyd in the first ever tie since Employee of the Quarter’s inception. Due to the outstanding nominations, we felt that there was no reason to give it to both deserving candidates. Each has demonstrated behavior and service that the City of Clinton is proud to see in its employees.

Stephanie Stair’s nomination: “A family called in about an autistic boy who no one showed up for his birthday party. Ms. Stair took it upon herself to arrange for the boy to come down to the police station where officers celebrated with the child, and it meant a lot to the child and his family. I believe that this exemplifies what we stand for as the City of Clinton. She could have easily said that it wasn’t a police matter but chose to go above and beyond in service above self.”

Brandon Floyd’s nomination: “I nominate Brandon Floyd for all he does in training, he always goes above and beyond. The leadership training given to city employees was excellent. He really cares about making us as a person and us as a city better. He also provides the police department with the best possible training. He provides over 2000 hours of specialized training a year to the police department with minimal cost to the city. He also assisted other agencies with training. Brandon is our field training supervisor and as such he is responsible for all the new recruits through their training, he instills a positive and professional attitude. He is a strong mentor to several of the guys. Last month he coordinated and supervised a major upgrade to the PDs firing range using inmate labor saving the city thousands of dollars.”
