At its 6 p.m. meeting on Monday, the Middle Township Committee will honor Anne Garrison as the June 2015 Employee of the Month. Garrison, the Economic Development and Grants Coordinator, began her career with Middle Township in April 2014.
“Annie joined our team during a time of great change and transition in the Finance Office,” Mayor Tim Donohue said. “She jumped right in and wore several different hats over the months as we moved to institute best practices and better accountability.”
Garrison cites the camaraderie with co-workers and the fact that she is able to interact with all the departments as favorite parts of her job. “Through doing payroll for a few months I became acquainted with many of the employees, and I am grateful for that,” said Garrison.
A resident of Cape May Court House, Garrison is married with an 8-year-old daughter, Grace, and a 5-year-old son, Gerry. In her spare time she enjoys spending time with family and friends, playing board games, reading and planning her next Disney trip.
The Middle Township Employee of the Month program was initiated by the Township Committee to honor employees who exemplify the Township’s commitment to better delivery of services and going the extra mile for residents. The program culminates with the Darius Graham Employee of the Year honor that is named after one of the Township’s most beloved employees in its history.
Nominations for the Employee of the Month Program are available inside Middle Township hall at three locations: Human Resources and Training Department, Administration Department, and on the bulletin board. Residents from the Township who have had a very positive interaction with any Middle Township employee may pick up the one-page nomination form and fill it out in the employee’s behalf. Each month a Township employee will be selected; the winning nominee will receive a certificate at a future Township Committee meeting along with a photograph posted on the bulletin board.
