CORPUS CHRISTI, TX – Jin Bohannon, a Senior System Specialist with the Water Division of Utilities, was recently named the 2018 City Employee of the Year for her exemplary work ethic.

“I’m very honored to receive this award and thank you to everyone who voted for me,” Bohannon said.

“I am grateful for the support from my co-workers and my supervisors and the director. While this award is addressed to me it would not be possible without everyone who is part of this team.”

She has also led efforts to establish the Department Operation Center (DOC) and ensures the facility systems are running efficiently and are user-friendly for plant operators.

Other Employee of the Year nominees included Utilities Work Coordinator Larry Gonzalez, Engineering Associate Edward Dunbar, and Utility Business Office Manager Margaret Morin.

The City’s Human Resources department hosted the recognition event on December 12 at the American Bank Center and coordinated the presentation of trophies and certificates to several outstanding employees.
