The City of Cleburne's STARS program recognizes staff members who go above and beyond to help serve the community. The latest recipient of the All-Star Award is Martina Bartolowits, the senior secretary for the Cleburne Police Department.
Bartolowits has served the City of Cleburne for more than a decade. Her colleagues noted that she is always quick to help others in the department. She helps translate for Spanish-speaking citizens, encourages others with a smile and supports the team beyond the regular 40-hour week.
“I love serving the citizens and supporting our staff members,” said Bartolowits. “I don’t do what I do for the recognition, but I’m so honored that my peers would think to nominate me for this honor. I appreciate it.”
For her outstanding work and exceptional service, Bartolowits received a City shirt and $50 gift card.
The All-Star Award is usually given out monthly. Anyone can submit a nomination by contacting the employee’s department.
Each All-Star winner for the fiscal year is then put into the running to become the City’s Superstar, which is the highest recognition in the STARS program.
