Cheryl Peterson was presented the Outstanding Local JSEC Coordinator award last week for her exemplary job at helping the JSEC committee achieve the goals they have deemed beneficial to the business community.

In the nomination letter, JSEC cited Peterson's willingness to assist in any project that needs to be done. Peterson has guided the committee in determining what classes, speakers and workshops the community feels are essential for employee and employer growth and improvement, resulting in Quick Book classes, bridging generational differences, leadership and workforce improvements and more.

Peterson implemented a booth at the Richland County Fair for businesses to use to recruit new employees. She also has been instrumental in contacting Richland County schools concerning the JSEC scholarship which is awarded to a high school senior going to a trade school.

Since human trafficking is a problem in the area, Peterson has spent countless hours researching speaker availability and organizations that would be of assistance in bringing awareness of the problem to youth and parents as well as the business community.

JSEC cited Peterson's willingness to assist in any way she can within the structure of her job duties with the Sidney Job Service. "Cheryl is a commensurate professional, highly motivated and organized, and is a key contributor to the success of the Sidney JSEC."
