July Employee of The Month – William Russell

As we all know, Jonesborough Parks and Recreation is typically hard at work during the spring and summer months.  With the athletic programs, water park and miles of green spaces and parks we are tasked with attending to, it is an extremely tough task to keep all things in the shape we expect here in Jonesborough.  It is with this in mind that I would like to recognize Beebo and his hard work and dedication.  His work ethic and drive are second to none.  He puts in countless extra hours to ensure our town has the best possible aesthetic. When you factor in our department is responsible for the upkeep of, 9 parks, the grounds downtown and the multiple outlying green spaces, it really makes you appreciate what a valuable asset Beebo is to our town. Over the last two weeks, we have been focused on the long and difficult task of cleaning up the 11E medians, which are visible to all who visit Jonesborough.  Beebo was the driving force in getting these 13 medians back in shape and ready for the crowds we are expecting for Jonesborough Days.  Without his presence, we would not have been able to complete this important project to level at which it sits.  Beebo is without a doubt one of the hardest working individuals I have ever had the pleasure of working with.  Plus, when you factor in his willingness to interact as an ambassador for Jonesborough with passersby, coworkers and the public in general, you can easily see why our department holds him in such high regard. It is for the reasons, and the countless others that I proudly nominate William Beebo Russell as Employee of The Month for the Town of Jonesborough. 

Thank you, William “Beebo” Russell! You are appreciated!
