Two Albany Recreation and Parks employees received distinguished state honors.
Franessa Stalter received the Distinguished Professional Award from the Georgia Recreation and Park Association. It is known as the highest award the group gives out.
"It was very humbling and I'm in a high class of caliber of people," said Stalter.
Yvette Roberts won the Distinguished Administrative Support Staff Award.
"It's surprising. It was surprising to know that I was appreciated the way that I was," said Roberts.
Stalter had been with the department for 16 years, and Roberts for 17 years.
