DSS Names Employees of the Month for November

December 4, 2017 -- The South Carolina Department of Social Services (DSS) has established a program to recognize staff members who perform their jobs exceptionally well, go above and beyond what is expected of them, and in doing so, demonstrates our core principles of competence, courage and compassion.

The four chosen for November were Becky Bonavida, a Child Protective Services performance coach for Region 5; Glenise Elmore, interim state human resources director; LaToya Roundtree, a SNAP and TANF program coordinator in the Greenwood County DSS office; and Todd Wilkins, a state information and systems business analyst. Region 5 includes Abbeville, Aiken, Bamberg, Barnwell, Calhoun, Edgefield, Greenwood, Laurens, McCormick, Newberry, Orangeburg and Saluda counties.

Staff selected for the Employee of the Month Program are awarded with lunch with the State Director along with other honorees, a dedicated parking space, a photo and write up displayed at State Office and a write-up sent to their community newspaper.
