Tonight’s Hometown Heroes are the men and women working in the Franklin County Jail.
County commissioners honored them for providing a safe environment during this pandemic and thanked them for their all-hands-on-deck attitude. Those staffers were recognized as unsung heroes and were thanked for their work in keeping the jail operational.
Each year, the jail staff nominates two employees for their outstanding performance. The commissioners presented the award for ‘Correctional Worker of the Year’ to Franklin County Jail business manager Tammy Zook. The award for ‘Correctional Officer of the Year’ was given to officer Randy Clendening.
