ENTERPRISE, Ala (WDHN) — Enterprise Parks and Recreation awards employee at a district-wide banquet in Dothan.

On Thursday, Enterprise Parks and Rec. Supervisor, James Foster, was awarded ‘Maintenance Staff of the Year’.

He joined the department as a Building Maintenance Supervisor in May 2006. His peers recognized James in the nomination as the “go-to person to handle the department’s maintenance and construction needs”.

Foster supervises high school students that choose to complete their hours through the Work-Based Learning Program with Enterprise Park and Recreation. He is also proficient in carpentry, plumbing electrical, and masonry work.

“James is able to visualize projects and develop solutions for the many tasks he is called upon. However, he is more than just a designer, he is a roll-up-the-shirtsleeve, take-charge type of person and leader,” the nomination stated.

“Not only does he assist with the department events and activities, often being asked to construct or repair props or activity sets, but he is also asked to work on our city or community events. He is always willing to help not only with his assigned work but anytime there is a need, no matter if the task is big or small.”

The award was presented to James at the Alabama Recreation & Parks Association District VI Annual Awards Banquet in Dothan.
