Duplin County forest ranger Jeff Marshburn was recently honored as the NCDA&CS Employee of the Month for January 2012. In recognition of Marshburn’s achievement, Assistant Commissioner David Smith presented him with a plaque and department shirt at a recent meeting in Raleigh.

The past few months have been full of change for Jeff Marshburn and the Duplin County office. Through resignations and retirements, Marshburn found himself having to do the work of four positions. Despite this adversity, he has continued to provide the people of Duplin County with services they expect from the N.C. Forest Service. Here’s an excerpt from his recommendation letter:

For Jeff, the only thing that matters at the end of the day is that the citizens of his county get the best service possible, and he has continued to provide that to the best of his ability. In what should be a frantic and stressful time for Jeff, he has not crumbled. Jeff has maintained his usual level head and pleasant attitude, and prioritized his job responsibilities to maximize efficiency.
