Duchesne County Recorder Shelley Brennan was recently recognized by her peers as the 2017 County Recorder of the Year.
“It is truly an honor to be recognized by such an amazing group of peers,” said Brennan. “I have sincerely enjoyed every moment of serving as Duchesne County’s Recorder. I cannot express how much I value the support and collaboration of this Association, my fellow Recorders and my amazing staff.”
Each year, since 1998, the Utah Association of County Recorders (UACR), a membership organization of Utah’s elected county recorders has chosen one member who has stood out among the membership for their work on behalf of the UACR and their own county.
“Shelly has consistently demonstrated her value as a recorder at the county level, but also statewide,” said Doug Perry, communications director of the Utah Association of Counties. “She is a great mentor to other recorders and this tribute to her work and commitment to the recorders is very fitting.”
Brennan, who took office in 2011, is the first recorder ever from Duchesne to receive the award. She is also only one of three elected official from Duchesne County to be recognized among all elected offices, with former County Auditor Diane Freston receiving County Auditor of the Year in 2005 and current County Surveyor Jerry Allred receiving County Surveyor of the Year in 2003.
Those honored are selected through a vote that is conducted and tabulated by UAC, along with other elected county government association groups that include the county assessors, auditors, attorneys, clerks, recorders, treasurers, sheriffs and surveyors.
Brennan will be formally honored at her UACR meetings in conjunction with the UAC Annual Convention, November 15-17 in St. George.
