McCray Named DETCOG Employee of the Year


Brookland, Texas – After earlier receiving her 15 year service award, Scherita McCray was named “Employee of the Year” for the Deep East Texas Council of Governments (DETCOG). Those presentations were made Thursday at DETCOG’s annual Christmas Luncheon which was held this year at Rayburn Country.

The award presentation started with DETCOG President, Angelina County Judge Wes Suiter saying the person receiving the recognition had started at DETCOG as a receptionist.   From there she later transferred to the HUD Housing Rental Assistance Program as a case worker where she served landlords and tenants with the same warm smile and commitment to provide “the best ever customer service”.

Noting this past year has been full of challenges Suiter said that “where others might gripe and complain, McCray has continued to do her job, holding strong and continuing to work with a smile, dedication and confidence. She exhibited an excellent work ethic, positive spirit and continued to increase her work production”.

The DETCOG Employee of the Year recognition began nineteen years ago as a way for the DETCOG staff to honor one of their own for truly outstanding service during the year. The award is intended for someone who has put forth extra effort to do a good job and constantly goes above and beyond the call of duty – a true “team player”.

The naming of Scherita McCray as DETCOG Employee of the Year was met with a warm round of applause.
