The Lancaster County Board of Commissioners approved awarding an Exceptional Circumstance Award to Karen Wedding during their Dec. 8 meeting. This award recognizes superior or exceptional job performance of Lancaster County employees. A county employee since 1988, Karen works at Nebraska Extension in Lancaster County as a Clerk Typist II. Karen was nominated by Karen Wobig, Department Head, and Jenny DeBuhr, Administrative Services Officer, of the Extension office. Jenny wrote, “This year has been an extraordinary year. She has been willing to do whatever is necessary to get a job done, even if that meant going beyond her typical work duties. Karen has been instrumental in getting our NEBLINE newsletter completed this year and took on increased responsibility designing pages and completing issues as other staff were faced with unplanned leave and competing duties. We would not have been able to produce certain issues without her.”
