Employee of the Quarter
We are very pleased to announce that Janette Cornett is the recipient our quarterly Quality Service Award. We were very fortunate to have had the opportunity to make Janette part of our office family in 2019. She has very quickly become a very valued part of our award winning motor vehicle registration and titling division. Janette has worked with the public the very vast amount of her entire life and she is simply a natural with people. It is always a joy to watch her engage with the public in a very positive and helpful fashion. She and an endless list of our staff are very routinely complimented on their helpfulness. And those compliments are a very significant part of the criteria that determines who is worthy of this award (4) times a year. And with that being said, Janette exemplifies what our entire office strives for everyday in providing cheerful and friendly service. Congratulations Janette we are very proud of you.
