employeee of the month

Annette Smutko, who has been with Rutgers Cooperative Extension (RCE) of Somerset County as a 4-H Administrative Assistant for the past three years, was named Somerset County Employee of the Month.

Annette was recognized, at the February 13, 2018 Somerset County Freeholder’s meeting, for her outstanding performance during a time when she had to do the work of two employees all the while learning a new system for vetting our 4-H volunteers, getting information together for the 4-H Open House, County Awards, starting new 4-H clubs and orienting new volunteers.

She did a great job and we are so happy to have her talents in our office.
