Workforce Staff Honored

At its 4th Annual Disaster Business Dinner and Awards Gala, the Dillon Long-Term Recovery Group honored our very own Mamie Legette as an Exceptional Business Volunteer!

Mamie has been employed as the SC Works System Coordinator by Pee Dee Regional Council of Governments since 2011 and has diligently worked and collaborated with a wide variety partners to strengthen our workforce development efforts. Though the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) mandates a robust list of partnerships, Mamie has gone beyond those required partnerships to engage many other social service, community, and faith-based organizations. In many communities, she is the face of SC Works Pee Dee.

Mamie has the heart of a servant and really does not like to have a big deal made about doing what she believes she has been assigned to do. She prefers to operate quietly and, often, behind the scenes in support of our work. However, we could not let this opportunity to honor her pass us by.

We extend our sincere congratulations to her for receiving this much deserved recognition.
