COLUMBUS– State Senator Gayle Manning (R–North Ridgeville) recognized Elyria, Ohio resident JoEllen Mitchell as the recipient of the “Parole Officer of the Year” award from the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction.
“JoEllen’s dedication to her Northeastern Ohio community has been tremendous during her tenure as a parole officer,” Manning said. “I am proud to recognize this achievement and I commend her for her exemplar leadership in our community.”
Mitchell has served as a parole officer in Cleveland Unit 8 since 2011.  She was awarded “Parole Officer of the Year” in late 2013 for her leadership as an Evidence-Based Practices coach. In this capacity, she helped to train new unit members on tools for successful case plan development and documentation of positive incentives for offenders.
