Kent County Department Heads have selected CRYSTAL L. YERKES from the Recorder of Deeds Office as the May 2022 Employee of the Month.

 

Crystal has been a Kent County employee since September 2001 and holds the position of Deed Clerk II. Her primary duties include cash receipting, assisting in the preparation of month end reports for realty transfer taxes due the State of Delaware and municipalities, processing invoices for the office, and imaging recorded plot plans.

 

          Over her 21 years of service, Crystal has gained in depth knowledge of deeds and mortgage recording processes and become cross trained in all aspects of fiscal and administrative procedures. She can perform a broad range of duties from document intake to payroll and do so with a positive attitude. Crystal is praised by supervisors for her willingness to lend a hand to co-workers, attorneys, title searchers and general public.  

 

          According to Kent County Recorder of Deeds Betty Lou McKenna, “Crystal has stepped up and helped the Office meet the recent staffing challenges caused by retirements and turnover. And although she is retiring herself at the end of May, it would have been remiss of me not to recognize her for her more recent efforts. Crystal is deserving of this honor and I wish her the very best.”

 

Congratulations Crystal on a job well done!

According to Planning Services Director Sarah Keifer, “Brian has consistently been an effective enforcement officer, more importantly he has demonstrated remarkable empathy for the people we serve. That empathy is just as often for the people we have to put in violation as it is for the complainants. I would suggest that this sort of kindness sets the standard for service to our community.”
