CLINTON—The University of Tennessee honored Anderson County Circuit Court Clerk Tyler Mayes as a certified public administrator at a Capstone event at Montgomery Bell State Park on April 11, a press release said.
Mayes serves as clerk for the Criminal and Circuit Court, both General Sessions courts, and the Juvenile Court of Anderson County. He has worked and served in the Anderson County court system for more than a decade, the press release said.
To achieve the designation, Mayes completed 80 credit hours in the County Officials Certificate Training Program (COCTP). The program is administered by the UT County Technical Assistance Service and is available to every county employee in the state.
“No other state in the nation provides county employees with such specialized training,” said Mike Garland, executive director of CTAS. CTAS is an agency of the statewide UT Institute for Public Service. Each course in the program is designed to aid county government officials in performing their jobs and efficiently administering county services. Classroom topics include ethics, fire insurance, finance, records management, proactive leadership, and information technology proficiency.
“I am proud to be a graduate of the University of Tennessee Institute for Public Service,” Mayes said. “This is a big accomplishment for my office and for me. I strive daily to provide the best services possible for the taxpayers of Anderson County. Completing this program shows an unwavering commitment to serve the citizens of Anderson County at the highest level possible.”
