Samuel Liggett, Sarah Trevino, Richard Booher and Mary Perkins were honored November 6, at a reception at Cedar Crest, the governor’s residence, for having been named employees of the third quarter at the Ellsworth Correctional Facility (ECF).
“The effort to ensure public safety and the effort to help offenders turn their lives around go hand in hand,” said Governor Sam Brownback. “We wish to express our appreciation for the important work of our corrections employees in the state of Kansas.”
Liggett, Trevino, Booher and Perkins joined 28 other employees of the Kansas Department of Corrections who were honored by the governor and by Corrections Deputy Secretary Johnnie Goddard at the ceremony. The event was the second such statewide Employee of the Quarter ceremony, recently initiated by Brownback.
Liggett, a corrections officer I, and Trevino, a corrections officer II, were named ECF Uniformed Employees of the Quarter. Booher, a corrections manager, was selected ECF Non-uniformed Employee of the Quarter. Perkins, a food service supervisor for Aramark, was honored as ECF’s Contract Employee of the Quarter.
