The Washington County Commissioners on Tuesday honored seven employees who recently completed "Going for the Gold" courses at Hagerstown Community College's Valley Mall site.

The Washington County Training Office and HCC's Division for Continuing Education have been offering the employee development courses in government management and support for the past four years.

The "Going for the Gold" series is designed to improve employee skills, knowledge and abilities, according to a county document.

Employees who completed the courses received certification in government supervisory management and office support management.

Candidates had to take a minimum of 24 course hours.

The following employees completed the series of courses:

  • Certificates in government supervisory management: Verna Brown, with the Emergency Services Department; Catherine Milburn and Sharon Showe, with the State's Attorney's Alternative Sanctions Office; and Angela Smith, with the Permits and Inspections Office.

  • Certificates in office support management: Vicki Lumm, with the County Attorney's Office; Rachel Mobley, with the Buildings, Grounds and Parks Department; and Diane Mongan, with the Highways Department.


Completion of the program becomes part of employees' personnel files and can be a factor in promotions in county government, according to a written statement.
