BRANCHVILLE — Branchville Correctional Facility Warden Kathy Alvey received an Extraordinary Leader Award this month.
The award was presented on behalf of Indiana Department of Correction Commissioner Rob Carter by IDOC Director of Staff Development and Training Nancy Riley.
The award, along with a Commissioner’s Challenge Coin, was presented in recognition of Alvey’s dedicated service over the course of the COVID-19 Pandemic, according to the IDOC.
When presenting the award, Riley noted exceptional leaders share the character points of will, fortitude and self-efficacy.
“Warden Alvey, all three of these special traits describe how you have handled yourself, not only during the pandemic, but during your entire career with the department,” Riley said. “You have been a great leader, mentor, and friend to all staff in the department.”
Alvey began her 28-year career in uniform in November 1992. Over her IDOC career, she has worked in custody, recreation and Unit Team before transitioning into an administrative role and later promoted to the warden position in October 2014.
Riley said Alvey’s ability to motivate and lead comes from many years of experience and superior training throughout her career. She cares for her staff, celebrates their accomplishments and counsels them when required, Riley noted.
