The Smith County Clerk’s Office surprised County Administrator Leonardo Brown with a lunch in his honor July 1, 2015. Brown recently completed the Certified Public Manager program, a nationally accredited comprehensive management development program specifically for managers in federal, state and local government. Brown completed an 18-month long comprehensive course at Stephen F. Austin State University to become a Certified Public Manager.
The Smith County Commissioners Court recognized Brown for the accomplishment last month.
“It’s no secret Smith County loves Leonardo and several offices have come together today to give honor where honor is due,” County Clerk Karen Phillips said.
Brown was hired as HR director for Smith County in 2009 and he became county administrator in October.
