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 480-563-4216, or visit their website at
