The Shining Star Award offers Camden County employees the opportunity to spotlight the great work accomplished by a co-worker, department, or team of colleagues. This award recognizes and illustrates excellence as a County value. All full and part-time staff, who have been employed at the County for at least one year, and are below the level of director, were eligible to be nominated individually or as a department or team. This year both an individual and a department were selected as the 2018 Shining Stars. Kitty Schroeder of the Camden County Solid Waste Department and the Camden County Information Technology (IT) Department were selected as the 2018 Shining Stars.
