Sheriff's Office Honors its Volunteers at Appreciation Luncheon
The Sheriff’s Office saluted to its dedicated volunteers at the annual Volunteer Appreciation Luncheon on Tuesday, October 29. More than 200 volunteers provide specialized assistance and outreach to inmates at the William G. Truesdale Adult Detention Center, offering religious services, Bible study, substance abuse recovery programs, tutoring, and even yoga and meditation.
Approximately 50 volunteers attended the luncheon at the Faith Activities Center at First Baptist Church. As the program began, guests viewed a video featuring inmates discussing how important the volunteers are to them and thanking them for volunteering in the Detention Center.
Following lunch, Mondre’ Kornegay, Technical Services Commander for the Sheriff’s Office, delivered the keynote speech. She recognized and applauded the volunteers for their service and asked them to acknowledge how special they really are for not only sharing their time and skills, but for working with inmates who truly need them.
Commander Kornegay then joined Sheriff Dana Lawhorne in presenting each volunteer with a small gift and certificate of appreciation. The program concluded with Sheriff Lawhorne expressing his admiration and gratitude to the dedicated corps of volunteers.
