Published 6:57 pm Saturday, September 2, 2023

Rodney Scott, Interim Cannery Manager, and a 24-year employee of Prince Edward County was selected as the County’s August Employee of the Month. The award was presented to Scott by Board Chair, Llew W. Gilliam Jr. and County Administrator, Douglas P. Stanley, at the Aug. 8 meeting of the Board of Supervisors.

Of note, Scott is the first county employee to be nominated by both citizens and a fellow employee. Linda and Bob Timmons of Darlington Heights submitted a nomination and wrote, “Rodney met us and had everything prepared and waiting for processing our vegetables. Prior to beginning, Rodney reviewed the safety and processing procedures, walked us through the steps that would be required, familiarized us with the different equipment and their purposes, and helped us determine the size of the cans we used. After which, we began preparing our vegetables and the canning process. Rodney is extremely knowledgeable, very thorough, very helpful, and is an example of an employee going far and beyond what one may expect. He is a credit to our County and a blessing to the citizens that utilize our cannery.”

Recently, Scott was asked to step into the much larger role of Interim Cannery Manager, upon the retirement of the prior cannery manager.
