Honor Farm recognizes two employees in second quarter

Nov 1, 2012 - Staff

Warden Michael Pacheco has announced Officer Mario Holcomb and Barbara Hall have been selected as the employees of the second quarter for the Wyoming Honor Farm.

Holcomb started his career in corrections at WHF on Feb. 17, 2006, as a correctional officer. He left the department and moved back to the state of Washington in November 2009. He rejoined the department as an officer at the Wyoming Women's Center in December 2010 and transferred back to the WHF on March 1.

Since his transfer back to WHF, he has not only improved the security threat group team, but his drive to improve the STG program has had a positive influence on the department as a whole. He has taken the initiative on his own to assist new employees with their duties, and he is always willing to share his experiences with those new employees.

Hall began her correctional career at WHF on Oct. 9, 1996. During her tenure with the department, Hall has worked as fiscal processing worker, administration specialist, financial statistical technician and as an accountant at the WHF.

Those who nominated her said her workload has increased three-fold since July because of the extra duties she has taken on. It was noted that Hall fills in everywhere she is needed and in almost every position from warehouse, kitchen, canteen, business office and many more. She is often heard saying "Oh, don't worry, I can do that."
