Sudduth, Wright honored with CUPD quarterly awards
CLEMSON — Corri Sudduth and Twana Wright were honored by the Clemson University Police Department (CUPD) with quarterly awards, Chief Greg Mullen announced Wednesday. Mullen made the announcement from the CUPD multi-purpose room at its headquarters in Ravenel Center Place.
“Part of our strategic plan is to make sure we recognize individuals in the department for things they are doing well,” Mullen said. “It’s important for these awards to be chosen by peers, because they are the folks working with and observing our nominees on a daily basis. We will continue to do this on a quarterly basis, and today we are proud to honor Corri and Twana for their achievements.”
Sudduth was named the officer for the quarter. She was recognized for respecting the uniform and badge, something Mullen called the highest honor in law enforcement. Sudduth was also cited for working with professionalism, participating and serving on campus-based organizations and projects within the department, engagement with community organizations, assisting fellow officers with reports and helping with the department’s social media.
“It’s a testament to Corri’s work that both her captain and lieutenant had very nice comments about her in the nominations,” Mullen said. “She’s a well-rounded officer, someone who’s willing to go out and not only work with the public, but also to take actions we sometimes need to take to enforce changes in behavior. I’m appreciative of all you do.”
Wright was named the professional staff member of the quarter. Wright is communications coordinator and wears a number of hats for the police department. She was recognized for her efforts in many areas, including Records Management System (RMS) and Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) training for staff, internet technology troubleshooting and National Crime Information Center (NCIC) expertise. She is also known for logging hours late at night and on weekends.
“Twana is really an all-around utility player for us,” Mullen said. “No matter what pops up, she always seems to be in the middle of it. I’m very excited to provide Twana with a very small token of our appreciation.”
