Martinez named RCDC Employee of Month
Joe Martinez has been named Employee of the Month for March
at the Reeves County Detention Center.
Martinez is married to Maria Martinez and is the proud father
of eight children.
Officer Martinez began his career with the Reeves County
Detention Center in October 1997 as a Correctional Officer.
In July 1999 he was promoted to Auto Mechanic Vocational
Instructor. In his current position, he instructs
the Auto Mechanics and Small Engine Repair classes for the
Education Department. Along with these duties he also is responsible for
maintaining all RCDC vehicles to include the transportation bus.
"He has always executed his duties in a professional manner and
maintains a high attendance in all of his
classes," said RCDC Warden Rudy Franco.
Martinez has had a remarkable impact on the Reeves
County Detention Center and the education department, according to
his supervisors. "He is well respected by his co-workers and is an integral
team player," said Franco.
Martinez has an unquestionable, intense work ethic, and is always
ready to lend a helping hand and get things done, according to Franco.
During the recent expansion, Martinez was instrumental in
helping the education department grow. "His contributions to the department
helped build the program to what it is
today," said Franco.
The Reeves County Detention Center is proud to recognize
Joe Martinez as Employee of the Month. "His high standards, quality of
work performance, and self-motivation have earned him this honor,"
said Franco. "It is a pleasure to be associated with an individual such
as Instructor Martinez, who exhibits such professionalism," he said.
"We wish him continued success in his career with the Reeves
County Detention center," said Franco.
Pageant seeks contestants
The Mrs. Texas America Pageant has issued a call for
candidates to compete for the title of Mrs. Texas America 2002. There
have been hundreds of inquiries from all over the state, but the city of
Pecos is not yet represented.
The Mrs. America Pageant is the longest running pageant
for married women in the country. In 26 years, the purpose of the
Mrs. America Pageant has remained consistent: to celebrate the beauty
of America's married woman. Mrs. Texas contestants do not
necessarily fit any particular mold. They represent an incredible variety
of backgrounds, lifestyles, personal interests, and range in age from 18
to 72 years.
The Mrs. Texas Pageant will take place June 7-9, at the
beautiful Crown Plaza Brookhollow Hotel in Houston. The contestants
will compete in evening gown, swimsuit and personal interview. Mrs.
Texas America 2002 will go on to participate in the nationally-televised
Mrs. America Pageant to be held in Honolulu, Hawaii in September.
Women interested in competing for the title of Mrs. Texas
America 2002 are encouraged to contact Bonnie Productions at
