Spotlight on Frances Wilson
Team Member since May, 2008
Latest Achievement: Completion of Bachelor of Business Administration Degree
The Brunswick-Glynn County Joint Water and Sewer Commission honors and recognizes the hard work and achievements of its staff. Deserving special recognition are those staff members that choose to continue higher education at the collegiate level while still maintaining full-time hours at work. One such staff member is Frances Wilson. Frances recently completed her Bachelor of Business Administration degree with a concentration in accounting. In fact, Mrs. Wilson was recognized by the College of Coastal Georgia in their Honors Day ceremony on May 1, 2015 for excellence in her studies. While at CCGA, Frances also took advantage of an opportunity to assist with the development of an internship relationship with the School of Business, a relationship that will allow the BGJWSC to serve the community by partnering with CCGA to be a host agency for future internships.
Frances has been employed by the organization since May of 2008, when she was hired as the Accounts Payable Coordinator for our Finance Department. Meeting the challenge of completing this degree put Frances on course to take on more responsibility within the organization. As such, her role here was expanded following graduation in order to take advantage of the skills that she developed while at the College of Coastal Georgia. She has demonstrated that she is a lifelong learner and looks forward to facing future challenges with the same enthusiasm.
One of the most valuable benefits offered by the BGJWSC is tuition reimbursement for staff members seeking qualifying degrees, such as those within the finance, accounting, business administration, public administration, emergency management, engineering, information technology and environmental science fields. Those that successfully complete each class towards a degree receive reimbursement for the cost of tuition and books. Staff members that complete a degree that benefits their role in the agency may also receive a pay incentive.
The BGJWSC highly values staff education and congratulates Frances on her accomplishments.
