FROM STAFF REPORTS

Mary L. McLeod, deputy commissioner of revenue for Culpeper County, has been awarded the title of master deputy commissioner of revenue.

The title comes under the Master Designation Program administered by the Weldon Cooper Center for Public Service and the School of Continuing and Professional Studies at the University of Virginia.

The program was developed to enhance the professionalism of local government officials and their staffs. It is sanctioned by the General Assembly.

The program takes a minimum of three years to complete, and requires a combination of extensive educa-tion and governmental experience.

The process doesn't end with the master designation.

To maintain the designation, McLeod will be expected to complete a minimum number of continuing education hours.

McLeod has been with the Culpeper office for six years. She serves as the lead customer service representative.

Prior to taking the post in Culpeper, she worked in the Spotsylvania County commissioner's office for seven years.

She is a member of the Virginia Association of Assessing Officers and the Virginia Association of Local Tax Auditors.

In a statement, Commissioner of Revenue Terry Yowell said the Master Designation Program is one way the office is committed to providing excellent customer service.

"With every course that an employee takes, we can provide the citizens of Culpeper County with the most up-to-date information available," Yowell said in the statement. "Ms. McLeod has been dedicated to furthering her education to that Culpeper County and its citizens can be assured that they are receiving the best information possible."
