Schuyler County Public Health and Yates County Public Health announced the 2019 Employees of the Year: Eleanor Fausold, Chelsea Bailey, Kristen Wagner, and Betty Brigham were named as the Employees of the Year for the two health departments.

Eleanor Fausold, MPH and Chelsea Bailey, RN, BSN were named as Employees of the Year for their efforts during the Hepatitis A event that occurred in Schuyler County over the summer. “Ellie and Chelsea worked well together as a team to quickly address this serious concern for our community and set up vaccination clinics for those exposed” said Deborah Minor, RN, MPH, Director of Public Health for the two health departments.

Kristen Wagner, RN and Betty Brigham were selected as Employees of the Year due to their work following the elimination of religious exemptions for vaccination. “Together they worked to set up and staff over 20 additional immunization clinics this past summer and fall to ensure that the children could be vaccinated before the first day of school” Minor stated.

“Each day our two counties benefit from the hard work provided by each and every one of our very dedicated and knowledgeable public health employees. It takes all of us working as a team to respond to the health needs and concerns of our community and I am truly honored to work with these staff” said Minor.
