At OCC's last full staff meeting in September, the OCC Awards & Recognition Committee announced George Moore as Employee of the Quarter. Moore is one of three watershed technicians working in OCC's Conservation Programs division. Moore, along with fellow Watershed Technicians Dennis Boney and Johnny Pelley, oversee operation and maintenance (O&M) on the state's 2,105 watershed upstream flood control structures. Moore was acknowledged for his extremely good working relationship with the conservation districts he assists. He was also recognized for facilitating arrangements between several districts and their local county commissioners to assist with purchase of compact track loader equipment. The equipment will help with watershed O&M that will benefit county commissioners by increasing the efficiency of protecting roads and bridges from flooding.
The nomination form entering George for consideration as Employee of the Quarter read "George Moore is an exemplary employee. The districts he serves in his assigned area love and respect him. He exercises diligence in all that he does and does not settle for anything less than excellence. He is a committed, dedicated, loyal employee that meets all expectations while exceeding standards in many instances."
