Each year, the Tennessee State Court Clerk’s Association bestows its Public Service Award on an individual who has gone over and above in their support for the organization.
This year, the Clerk’s Association chose Administrative Office of the Courts Court Services Director Mary Rose Zingale to receive the award. Zingale was presented with the award at the Clerk’s Association’s recent fall conference.
“I cannot remember a time that Mary Rose has not been a part of the planning of our clerk conferences,” said Crystal Greene, the past president of the Clerk’s Association and current clerk and master for Giles County. “During my term as President I spoke with her more than I did my own family. She tirelessly worked to make sure that every detail was taken care of. Thank you Mary Rose for your hard work and support for the Tennessee State Court Clerk's Association.”
The Clerk’s Association represents Tennessee’s approximately 205 court clerks. Clerks in all 95 counties are responsible for maintaining court dockets and records and handling administrative matters.
