The Calvert County Board of County Commissioners today congratulated Department of Economic Development Executive Administrative Assistant Sandy Bentley for being named Employee of the Month for January 2018. Sandy was recognized for exceptional performance during the county’s recent reorganization.

In July 2017, Calvert County Government split the Department of Economic Development and formed the Department of Communications and Media Relations in an effort to consolidate and streamline county functions. For months before and after the division, Bentley served as the office manager and the executive administrative assistant for both departments simultaneously. Her dedication and tireless service kept office functions running smoothly despite major organizational changes, staff changes and a physical relocation.

Bentley’s accomplishments during this exceptionally demanding period included training employees, managing purchase orders, payroll, job applications and budgets for two departments. Her efficiency, effectiveness and support was a major factor in the success of the transition and maintaining seamless department operations. Congratulations on your achievement Sandy.
