2022 Employee of the Year

Beth Porter, Administrative Assistant, Health Department

5+ Years of Service

Beth has supported everyone during the COVID crisis that lasted over 3 years.  She has been devoted to keeping her department organized, which has become an increasingly daunting task as the office has offered additional services and programming. She is a team player, always keeps a positive attitude, and frequently lends support to other departments, both physically and emotionally.

It’s been said that Beth is the “glue that keeps the Health Department together and her sense of humor is second to none!”

She has brought joy, laughter, creativity, and cleverness into the workspace especially when people needed it the most. She heightens the morale on her team and also in the building. Beth has worked many evenings and weekends to run special programs in order to keep on top of the increased demand. 

During COVID, Beth took the lead role in the search for PPE’s, maintaining inventory, working with other organizations in need of these items, and ensuring that the community was protected as much as possible during this time. She cares about residents’ needs and always provides a high level of customer service.

Beth played a key role in organizing and managing the COVID/Flu clinics and made sure that those events ran smoothly, even in the face of supply chain and provider-related challenges. Without Beth, there is no way the Board of Health Department would have been able to keep up with the high increases in demand during the pandemic.
