Nancy English has been with the Association South Central Oklahoma Governments (ASCOG) in different roles for a long time, most recently as the deputy executive director, and will now retire in a few weeks after 32 years of service.
English and the staff at ASCOG had a celebration this past Thursday to honor her years of service and how she was a big part of the office.
ASCOG Director of Public Safety Perry Brinegar stated that English will be missed and read the proclamation on the plaque that was given to English for her years of service.
“Nancy will leave a great big gap in all of our lives and hearts. The workplace is never quite the same when someone like you departs,” Brinegar said. “This is in recognition of your 30-plus years of extraordinary service to the clients and staff of the Association of Southwest Central Oklahoma Governments.”
Several members of the staff that hired English also made a couple of compliments and then she made sure to thank everyone who came to the party and everyone she has worked with through her tenure.
“The people is what makes this organization and over the years, there has been quite a few go through and we have developed some pretty good friendships,” English said. “Not just with the staff, but with the trustees and all of the communities we have worked with. Thank you all for coming, it has been an incredible 32 years. I also want to thank the Board of Trustees as well. Without them this organization wouldn’t be able to run as smoothly as it does.”
ASCOG serves eight counties and is a voluntary association of town, city and county governments within the region. The counties it serves include Caddo, Comanche, Cotton, Grady, Jefferson, McClain, Stephens and Tillman Counties.
