Tripp wins fifth Doyle Award
The application Bennett read to the Board of Supervisors at its Tuesday, May 15 meeting also said, “Her unique sense of humor often gets us through the day.”
The Lassen County Employees' Recognition Committee made the selection based on the nomination, which also pointed out Trip’s commitment to Toys for Tots. She’s been collecting toys for 19 years to help supply the program that distributes Christmas gifts to children.
Tripp also contributes her time to fingerprinting preschool children, the Sober Graduation celebration at the Lassen County Fairgrounds, the Every 15 Minutes program to educate teens on the dangers of drinking and driving and the sheriff’s department obstacle course and boating display at the annual Children’s Fair.
“Throughout the county, we’re all familiar with who she is,” Bennett read. “We recognize her face and smile.”
“I think we should have an award for the best written nomination,” said County Administrative Officer John Ketelsen.
The Lassen County Employee Recognition Committee also considered Anita Davis, program coordinator for the sheriff’s Department, for the award. She was nominated by Regina Mineau. The committee also considered Evon Smith, of Lassen Works, who was nominated by Melody Brawley.
“I always appreciate how much the employees mean to this county,” Doyle said, presenting the award to Tripp. “They’re our best asset.”
“It takes a lot to follow in your footsteps,” Tripp replied.
The award was established to give recognition to Lassen County employees who demonstrate a personal commitment to provide service and create professional and successful partnerships in the course of performing their job duties. It is named for Irene Doyle, who retired from county employment after 34 years.
