MCC Supervisor State Line Officer of Year

(Bradenton, Fla., June 21,  2007) - William "Bill" Chiaramonti, office supervisor and information technology specialist with the Manatee Community College (MCC) Traffic Safety Institute (TSI), has been named Line Officer of the Year by the Florida Association of Community Corrections (FACC). He is the first person from the DUI/Driver Improvement area to receive the award, which will be presented during a June 26 FACC State Training Institute program at the Hyatt Sarasota. More than 300 people are expected to attend.

Patrick McCabe, director of MCC's TSI, nominated Chiaramonti for the state award. McCabe said Chiaramonti is an invaluable employee with expertise in many areas. In three separate offices that serve more than 12,000 clients a year, Chiaramonti is credited with maintaining a calm, intelligent and helpful attitude and taking time to make sure each client's questions are answered. With MCC for 12 years, Chiaramonti provides oversight to all driving improvement program operations and helps coordinate the DUI program. As IT specialist, he also monitors various software programs and acts as troubleshooter. Chiaramonti is BrainBench certified in Microsoft Windows XP Pro.

"The TSI staff always asks him the difficult questions. He is our major resource when computers or software break down. He is responsible, reliable and loyal," said McCabe.
