13th Annual Badge and Recognition Ceremony

On September 8, 2012, our department held our annual

at Hendersonville High School.

Recognized were those employees who were recently

promoted and two individuals who had completed their probation.

Chaplain Dennis Allen lead the benediction and pledge of allegience.

Thank you to Kelly Hibbs for performing the National Anthem.
