Rhonda Schmidt, Payee Services (Recognized for Outstanding Team Player by Jill, CTC on Jun 11, 2019)
"I am pretty sure I give this wonderful woman many gray hair! However I could not do my job without her years of one on one support and encouragement. (Sometimes on a daily basis!) I am amazed by how she takes the hodge podge of information I send her; does her magic and gives it back to me in one easy to understand printout that is like my bible for Resident's accounts. The accounts she helps me deal with at CTC are just a small handful of accounts that Payee Services deal with on a daily basis... (This whole group is amazing I am sure!) But Rhonda has been the one to work with me personally the most; she has invested countless hours via email, on the phone, and in person to educate me over the many years just to keep me going the right direction. I would be completely lost without her patience and calming guidance! Thank you Rhonda for all you do!"
Sheri Konitzer, Independent Living Cooridnator, Human Services; Sophie Beaumont (Recognized for Exceptional Commitment by Cindy Fonseca, Youth Justice on Jun 11, 2019)
"We were notified of a client who recently attained the age of 18, that an abrupt decision had been made by the client that she would be leaving her foster home placement. The client had already taken her belongings from the home and had made initial contact with someone that she could rent from, however had no money to pay toward rent. Sheri was in contact with this youth immediately and took a drive to the youth's current County of residence to meet up with her, to ensure that she was safe, and also to try to negotiate a compromise between the 18 year old and her foster mother to try to make things work. Sheri knows the ins and outs of Independent Living as she has been doing it for a long time. Through Sheri's persistence, the placement between this youth and her foster parent was able to be salvaged, at least for the time being. Thank you Sheri for your perseverance and dedication!"

"The reason for this email is this past Saturday at the down town jail (WRC) we had a sink plugged in receiving cell #4 which we really needed for use right away. Greg Eichhorn was the maintenance person on deck. Greg worked on the sink and system for about an hour or so. Due to his perseverance and climbing over pipes and squeezing through tight areas, as the pipes were the farthest in the pipe chase. I am sure he was not excited to have to climb in there to get to the pipes but he did. What also impressed me is that when he was done, the work area in the cell and sink looked better then when he started. He cleaned up after himself and even cleaned out the sink. thanks for the job well done.
This is just an example of the quality service you provide."

Shelter Care Staff, Brown County Shelter Care (Recognized for Exceptional Commitment by Kayla Robinson, Juvenile Court on Mar 28, 2019)
"This week I had a client who had a birthday, however both of her parents are deceased and she was sad that she wouldn't have any visitors or birthday surprises while she is at a residential placement. While she stayed at shelter care (months ago) she formed some very strong bonds and positive relationships with staff. It was her birthday this week and I called Shelter Care to see if they had time to write a small birthday card from a couple of the staff that she still talks about to this day, that she misses. Those staff members and others put together a large card with some of her favorite items and funny sayings to brighten her day, as well as signed it with positive words of encouragement. They also gave her a small gift bag full of some of her favorite snacks. This client has not been at shelter care for months, nor did they have to do this! Staff went above and beyond, while still assisting other clients and daily tasks while at work with a good amount of clients placed there. This small gesture made my client's whole birthday she was ecstatic! Thank you!"
