Central Mississippi Residential Center honored not one, but two employees of the year at its annual program.
Officials say Footprints administrative assistant Doreen Page and CMRC's senior housekeeper Stephanie Thames tied for the honor for 2012.
CMRC director Debbie Ferguson says the entire staff is doing a wonderful job and should be applauded for what they do.
"We wouldn't be here if it were not for the work of our employees," said Ferguson. "And it's just a way for us to celebrate them and the terrific work that they do."
Ferguson says an employee is recognized each month for outstanding service. Then the employees vote from among that group for employee of the year.
