    We are pleased to announce Ms. Vicki Wilkerson Polk County Employee of the Month for November 2018.

    Ms. Wilkerson has been employed with Polk County for almost 4 years. Prior to joining us at the county, she worked with the Friends of Polk Animal Control. She helped with a spay and neuter project that resulted in 47 unwanted animals to be fully vetted in hopes they can go on to find their forever homes.

    Her supervisor, Mr. Jeff Crawford says “Ms. Wilkerson is very dependable and doesn’t mind helping…when help is needed. She is a great asset to this department.”

    We are very proud to recognize Ms. Vicki Wilkerson Employee of the Month for November 2018!
