A PROCLAMATION TO HONOR
WHEREAS: Friends and co-workers would like to take this opportunity to honor Francisca Sierra for 34 wonderful years of service to Douglas County, Kansas.
WHEREAS: Francisca "Fran" Sierra began her journey with Douglas County on November 1, 1976 as the "Voice of Douglas County" where she handled all switchboard calls jointly for the City of Lawrence and Douglas County. Thousands of local residents have heard her voice first representing the police department, sheriff's office, city hall, the recreation centers, District Attorney, District Court and Municipal Court among other departments.
WHEREAS: Fran is multi-talented and has worn many hats at Douglas County. In addition to switchboard operator for 18 years, Fran has worked as a computer technician for the Information Technology Department and most recently as administrative support to the Douglas County Correctional Facility for inmate services.
WHEREAS: Co-workers describe Fran as a loyal friend and employee everybody likes; a devoted Jayhawk fan who envisions March Madness Week as a long awaited vacation; a lady with a warm generous heart and a beautiful soul; and a sweet hardworking, dedicated individual who doesn't mind being called "Franzola."
WHEREAS: The patrons of Douglas County want to thank Fran for her dedication to Douglas County and its residents and wish her a thoughtful farewell for a much earned retirement.
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS OF DOUGLAS COUNTY, KANSAS, that we honor Francisca Sierra for her many outstanding accomplishments here at the County.
ADOPTED this 30th day of March 2011.
