This morning, we held the surprise at work for our
2015 Sedgwick County Excellence in Public Service winner. This year’s
recipient is Jill Tinsley (Communications), who was nominated by David Miller
(DIO-IT) and Lindsay Poe-Rousseau (Budget). Jill began her career in 2007
in the Budget Office after completing her Master’s in Public Administration
(MPA) at Wichita State University. In 2012, she was promoted to Community
Relations Director, where she helps connect Sedgwick County to the community.
Jill leads the Sedgwick County United Way campaign, she coordinated an internal
campaign to connect County staff with opportunities to improve student success,
and this year took the lead role to coordinate elections logistics, assisting
the Election Office for advance voting and elections support.
Outside of her County job, Jill is active in a number
of community service organizations. She is an office holder on the Starkey, Inc.
Board of Directors, and she recently led the effort to coordinate that
organization's 2015 planning retreat. She also is active with the Arc of
Sedgwick County, participating in fundraisers and events to increase awareness
for individuals with disabilities. Most recently, Tinsley was a part of the
Support Our Circle Walk for the Arc, held at the INTRUST Bank Arena.
