ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Dougherty County's first female department head was recognized Monday for 30 years of service.

Elections Supervisor Carolyn Hatcher got a standing ovation from Dougherty County commissioners Monday morning for serving the county since 1978.

She was the first woman to hold that title and the first woman to serve as a department head. In her 30 year tenure, Hatcher supervised 72 elections and saw the voting process go from paper ballots to punch cards to touch screens.
