Dare County employee receives 25-year service pin

Shanna Fullmer, director of the Dare County Public Works Department, was recognized with a service pin presentation at the Dare County Board of Commissioners meeting held Feb. 1.

Fullmer received a service pin commemorating 25 years of service to Dare County.

She graduated from Virginia Tech in 1992 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in English. In 1996, Fullmer began working as an administrative support specialist for the Dare County Public Works Department.

Over the years, she pursued various educational opportunities, learned all aspects of the operation and was promoted to the position of solid waste superintendent in 2017. She began serving as director of the Dare County Public Works Department in October 2018.

Fullmer strives for the department to provide consistent, reliable services to year-round residents and visitors. In 2021, the Public Works Department collected just under 27,000 tons of trash in unincorporated Dare County and the Town of Kitty Hawk.

According to her colleagues, Fullmer has “proven herself to be more than capable by exhibiting a can-do attitude and working daily to make the Public Works Department run more efficiently.”

For more detailed information about Fullmer’s 25 years of service to Dare County, view the February 2021 service pin presentation video on the county’s YouTube page.
