The Town of Brownsburg is home to tremendous employees across all job areas. This was particularly evident in 2020, when each employee was faced with changing everyday routines due to curve balls thrown by COVID-19.
This year, Town Leadership has created three awards to recognize those employees who performed above and beyond expectations: GEM (Giving Excellence Meaning), Ignitor of the Year, and Rookie of the Year. Below are the inaugural winners of these awards.
GIVING EXCELLENCE MEANING (GEM)
Megan Attwood, Parks Department
Megan has been with the Parks Department for five years, first as the Assistant Recreation Manager, and for the past year as the Youth Services Manager. In her role, she oversees the Before and After School (B.A.S.E.) program, which in a typical year serves approximately 500 children. In 2020, Megan created numerous safety measures and guide staff through implementing them to ensure staff and children were safe throughout the pandemic. Because of her efforts, Brownsburg children are in a safe environment while in the Parks Department’s care.
IGNITOR OF THE YEAR
Scott Doehrman, Clerk-Treasurer’s Office
Deputy Clerk-Treasurer Scott Doehrman has recently implemented two important initiatives that have made employees’ lives easier. At the beginning of this year, Scott was responsible for the launch of our new paystub portal. Last year, Scott led the process for the adoption of our new time clock system, which allows employees to clock in and out remotely using their mobile phones. Scott has worked with the Town just under three years and already is making a huge mark on our Town!
ROOKIE OF THE YEAR
Shelby Abner, Community Engagement Department
An amazing photographer and designer, Shelby designs the Town’s staff e-newsletter, creates a quarterly mailer for residents of 46112, and manages the Town’s social media accounts. In 2020, Shelby led the effort to replace the Town’s old website with a new, intuitive, user-friendly one. The task required her to work with multiple departments and members of the public to ensure the website met all users’ needs. Her efforts have greatly improved the Town’s ability to meet the communications needs of employees and residents.
