YORK COUNTY, SC - Please join Sheriff Kevin Tolson, and members of the York County Sheriff's Office family in congratulating the August Awards and Commendations.
August Employees of the Month
- Deputy Nathan Ferrara was selected for Employee of the Month for August based upon the kindness and compassion that he showed to a York County citizen. Deputy Ferrara conducted a well-being check on an elderly female and learned that the female was upset because her family never comes to visit her and she also had not eaten a decent meal in a few days. Feeling a great deal of compassion for this individual, Deputy Ferrara took it upon himself to buy her lunch out of his own pocket and then spend time with her while she ate. Deputy Ferrara did not look for recognition for his actions and his kind deed was only discovered when his supervisor was conducting a routine review of Deputy Ferrara’s video footage.
- Court Officer Florence Green - Officer Green was selected for the Employee of the Month for August based on her exceptional work ethic. She handles multiple jobs as well as her own job as Court Officer. She works in Visitation, Booking, assists in Pre-Employment Testing, Background Investigations, and helps with Administrative duties. She has also learned the duties of the mailroom, and has provided back-up service multiple times as needed while the Records Management Clerk is on vacation, etc. She has also taken it upon herself to learn other areas that has made her become a valuable asset to the facility. She works daily without complaint.

- Sergeant Stacey Sexton is to be commended for her dedication and passion for the Pilgrim’s Inn organization in Rock Hill, SC.
