“George has displayed the skill sets and dedication necessary for leadership and his varied experiences should serve him well in his new role,” said Potter-Blair. “He will be a true asset to the District 4 staff.”

George began his career with state government in 1998 as a youth worker with the Department of Juvenile Justice. In 1998 he transferred to the Cabinet for Health and Family Services (CHFS) as an adult and child protective services investigator.

In 1999 George was promoted to the position of social service worker II, where he worked with foster and adoptive families. In 2001 he was again promoted to social service clinician. George received the CHFS employee of the year award in both 2002 and 2005.

George began his career with the Department of Corrections in 2006 as a probation and parole officer in District 5. He has supervised multiple types of caseloads and mentored many new officers. Scott was the recipient of the 2008 District 5 achievement award.

A graduate of Western Kentucky University, George earned his bachelor’s degree in sociology and a minor in criminology. He is a graduate of the 2014 Commissioner’s Executive Leadership Program.
