Front Royal, VA — The RSW Regional Jail celebrated its first official staff retirement this week since opening the facility in June 2014. Barbara C. Stickley retired from her position as a Correctional Officer effective November 30, 2016 with 20 years of outstanding dedication, loyalty, and service to the Shenandoah County Sheriff’s Office where she started employment on November 13, 1996 and the Rappahannock Shenandoah and Warren Regional Jail. Staff gathered with Mrs. Stickley and her family to celebrate her retirement on Wednesday where she was presented with a display case that included her badge from Shenandoah County, along with hers from the RSW Regional Jail.
According to Superintendent Bill Wilson, “During her career, the field of corrections has changed remarkably. Barbara was able to adapt from working in jail with indirect supervision and a rated capacity of 55 inmates to one with direct supervision and a rated capacity of 375. During her tenure here at RSW, Barbara had the respect of both staff and inmates. She always had a pleasant smile and a sweet southern drawl, but she was firm, fair and consistent when it came to enforcing the rules.”
On behalf of the Jail Authority Board, Doug Stanley, Warren County Administrator and RSW Regional Jail Authority Chairman, thanked Ms. Stickley for her dedication and service to Shenandoah County and the RSW Regional Jail, “I have heard many positive commentsabout Officer Stickley’s attitude and ability to get along with those that she worked with. She set a great example for the organization. We wish her a long and happy retirement.”
