“My first interaction with the Soil and Water Department began when I was a fifth grade student in the year 2000, twenty three years ago. My second interaction was when I became a Fifth Grade Teacher in 2018. My third interaction was when I became a Wilkes County Commissioner in 2020. Throughout each interaction, I have always found a friendly, welcoming, and knowledgeable staff who works tirelessly to put Wilkes County and its citizens first. I am very proud of the work the Wilkes County Soil and Water Department does on a daily basis.”
