MTC Recognizes 2020 Celebrating Excellence Winners
We’d like to recognize and congratulate our 2020 Celebrating Excellence winners! In a year of chaos and struggle, 2020’s winners and nominees went above and beyond their normal duties.
Several factors go into choosing our Celebrating Excellence recipients including years of service, leadership, impact, and character. We congratulate the winners for making a positive contribution at their facility and appreciate all they do for our MTC family!

For corrections/detention, the categories are: program services employee of the year, correctional officer of the year, support services employee of the year, and community supporter of the year.
