HUNTINGDON — The Carroll County Health Department was recently honored with a pair of Annual Public Health Excellence Awards from the Tennessee Department of Health West Regional Office. The department was named Outstanding Health Department of the Year for west Tennessee, and Nurse Supervisor Anna Todd was presented the Outstanding Leadership Award.
Emily Rushing, director of the Carroll, Henderson and Chester county health departments, told The Banner CCHD was excited to win the award, noting it is Carroll County’s first win.
Rushing said, “This has been an unusual year. We’ve all pitched in and had to work extra hard, so that makes this award extra special. From our frontline staff and nurses to our back office staff working weekends to do contact tracing, the Carroll County staff have done it well and with excellence.”
