The recipients of the 2017 blue ribbons were honored on Tuesday. The honorees received recognition for their work and a plaque to commemorate their hard work.

Lacy Bobo, who is a member of the UTC police department had this to say about the award:

“You know it’s a validation that I am doing my job correctly. This is basically what I am supposed to be doing anyway, and it’s letting me know that the public is receiving my efforts and appreciating what I am doing and I am fulfilling the promises I made when I was getting hired for this job.”

If you have a faculty or staff member who you think deserves to be considered then send your nominations to Melanie Sadler at melanie-sadler@utc.edu.
