I and the Undersheriff this year had the distinct pleasure of honoring commissioned, non-commissioned, and special guests for their dedication to duty and professional excellence in support of public safety. This annual event gave the Sheriff’s Office the opportunity to recognize outstanding examples of performance and professional excellence in making the
community a safer place while bringing family and friends together for fellowship.
This year’s event was also a celebration of Christmas as well as those awards of recognition. I cannot express my appreciation enough for the community and their support in making the event such a great evening for the Howell County Sheriff’s Office staff, family and friends. Through various significant donations, every child was able to receive a gift from Mr. and Mrs. Claus and what a treat it was to see those smiling little faces. Also, every employee was able to walk away with a gift or a gift certificate to a local business.
With the most sincere appreciation, I would like to thank the following businesses for their donations and support for this event: McFarland Spine and Sport, Hirsch Feed and Farm Supply West Plains, Meeks, Nikkilaine Photography, Howell-Oregon Electric, Ozark Wings, Southern Sass Salon, Pizza Shack, West Plains Greenhouse and Nursery, Terry Newton with Shelter Mutual Insurance Willow Springs, Dairy Queen, Ozark Cafe, Viandel Vineyard in Mountain View, Southern Magnolia, Tantastic, 10/40 Coffee, Jeff Wood, Creative Cakes 2, Sara Inman with Park Lane Jewelry, and Inam Saba Express Mini Mart.
I would also like to thank District 154 Representative David Evans for providing the night’s main course, 37th Judicial Circuit Presiding Judge Steve Privette for his endorsement of the evening’s awards, Mr. and Mrs. Claus for their time and delivery of the spirit of Christmas, my niece for taking the time and bringing her talent to provide face painting for all the children, Reda Foster for providing photography throughout the nights event, Assessor Daniel Franks for the preparation of nights main course and lastly Michelle Miller’s unwavering support to the Office of Sheriff. Without her support a lot of the evening events and gifts would not have been possible.
In closing, I again would like to thank the staff of the Howell County Sheriff’s Office and their movement forward in this dynamic change. This first year; we as a team have made major benchmark accomplishments moving toward our strategic vision of providing a structured culture consisting of specialized knowledge, skills, and abilities built on an intrinsic motivation to provide elevated standards of service and protection for the community with honor. Thank you for your hard work and dedication to serving the Sheriff’s Office and the citizens of this beloved County.
Thank you to the family and friends that support these individuals daily, without your support and reassurance; the challenges in this demanding profession would be even more difficult.
