Employee of the Month

  • April 2018


    Mrs. Brenda Stanfield is Polk County’s Employee of the Month for April 2018.  Brenda started with the Superior Court Clerk’s Office in July of 2002 as receptionist. Department head Sheila Wells says Brenda “…is one of the kindest people you will ever meet.” She is the first person to volunteer no matter the job! She always greets everyone with a smile and makes every effort to help anyone that walks in the door.

    Mrs. Wells says, “Brenda is my one in a million and every office would be better off if they had a Brenda!”


    Congratulations to Mr. Brenda Stanfield, April Employee of the Month
