Employee Recognized for Community Efforts

Cindy Haddon, Walton EMC marketing representative, may need a wheelbarrow for all her recent awards.

Marketing Representative Cindy Haddon with community awardsConcern for her community and hard work benefiting the organizations she belongs to are nothing new for Haddon. She has a long history of caring about others.

“Lots of people work hard for the community,” Haddon humbly says. “It’s nice to be recognized, but I don’t do this for the awards. I do it because people need help.”

The marketing representative has been active in many organizations including the Walton County, Oconee County and Athens Area chambers of commerce; the Athens Area Home Builders Association; the Northeast Georgia Red Cross; The Clarke and Oconee YWCO; Oconee County and Area 7 Rotary Clubs; and as a volunteer for local schools and her church.
