TOPEKA — Larned Juvenile Correctional Facility employees Tim Bagby and Kay Keller were honored Wednesday at a reception at the governor’s residence. They were named Employees of the Second Quarter at LJCF.
Keller was unable to attend the event.
Bagby joined 27 other employees of the Kansas Department of Corrections who were honored by the governor and Ray Roberts, corrections secretary at the ceremony. The event marked the first statewide Employee of the Quarter honors, recently initiated by Brownback.
Bagby, a juvenile corrections officer I, was named LJCF Uniformed Employee of the Quarter. Keller, a certified nursing assistant, was selected LJCF Non-uniformed Employee of the Quarter.
“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 express our appreciation for the important work of our corrections employees in Kansas.”
