Wildwood Selects 2015 Employees of the Year

Each year, Wildwood Correctional Complex selects its Employees of the Year. Nominations are submitted by the entire staff and selected by an employee selection committee. Employees are selected for demonstrated professional duty performances, service to the state and Wildwood Correctional Complex and the support and assistance provided to their fellow employees. Robert Hibpsham, Superintendent of Wildwood Correctional Complex announced this year’s winners as Correctional Officer Paul Bell and Correctional Officer Lonnie Denney.

The two winners of the employee of the year award for 2015 are truly distinguished employees. Officer Bell, a 23 year Department of Corrections employee and Denney, a 12 year veteran of the department were selected for the award because they have been consistent, strong performers, both team players with good attitudes, a balanced demeanor, commitment to professionalism, and their ability to interact well with staff and prisoners alike.

Both Correctional Officer Bell and Denney are positive role models and greatly contribute to an effective work force and a positive work environment.
