Chief Justice Thanks Tyler Court Employees
MIDDLEBOURNE, W.Va. — Supreme Court Chief Justice Evan Jenkins visited Family Court Judge Robert C. Hicks, Circuit Clerk Candy Warner and other court employees in Tyler County on July 1 to say ‘Thank You’ for their dedicated service to the public during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“The Supreme Court is very grateful to all the West Virginia judicial employees who worked so hard throughout the pandemic to fulfill our Constitutional mandate that the courts be open to all.
A victim of domestic violence or a child being abused, for example, needed access to the courts and our dedicated judicial employees were there to help.
It was only through their outstanding service that we were able to keep courts operating, even in the face of an unprecedented national emergency,” said Chief Justice Jenkins.
He presented a special Certificate of Appreciation to Tyler County employees from the Justices of the Supreme Court.
“I’m very appreciative of the support the Court has lent and particularly their willingness to explore new ways of addressing that which we had never dealt with before. Some of the new technology they provided is continuing to be very helpful in providing services in rural counties,” said Judge Hicks, of the Second Family Court Circuit (Marshall, Tyler and Wetzel Counties).
“It was a privilege to serve our community during that difficult and trying time, and I appreciate very much being recognized by the Supreme Court of Appeals for it,” said Clerk Warner.
