CHATTANOOGA, TN (WLAF) – Campbell County Litter Control Officer Glennis Monday was recognized at the 2023 TDOT/Keep Tennessee Beautiful Awards of Excellence Conference held at the end of last week, September 28 and 29th in Chattanooga.
The conference was held at the Chattanooga Marriott Downtown and celebrated 40 years of service to all east, middle, and west Tennessee.
Officer Glennis Monday was nominated by County Mayor’s Executive Assistant Keisha Howard for the Judge Larry E. Potter Law Enforcement Award.
“Not once, not twice, but three times Officer Monday has won this prestigious award. Officer Monday was asked to speak to all 95 counties at the conference in regard to the Tennessee litter laws and illegal dumping,” Howard said.
He said he was honored to have received the award three times now.
Monday also spoke about the secured load/tarp law, which is now called the Sgt. Chris Jenkins Law.
According to Monday, he received the first of these awards ever given for “prosecution and enforcement of environmental law breakers and enforcing the state’s litter laws.”
“I’m proud of the award, and I love keeping our county clean,” Monday said. (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 10/03/2023-6AM)
