Jeff Stange is one of the recipients of the August Fort Dodge Correctional Facility Employee Spotlight Award.
This monthly award was established to recognize individuals who have performed outstanding work, demonstrated a commitment to a team atmosphere, participated in a major accomplishment or are/were involved in a project or event in the operation of the facility or in the community.
Stange began his career with the Department of Corrections at the North Central Correctional Facility, Rockwell City, on June 17, 1991, as a correctional officer. On Oct. 17, 1997, he transferred to FDCF. During a recent staff assault, Stange responded less than 5 seconds after the incident began and assisted his fellow co-worker who, as a result of Stange and other staff responding, was not substantially injured.
