JOSEPH McKINNEY of Reidsville, "Boss of the Month!"

County Manager Salutes Rockingham County Citizen

Boss of the Month” – JOSEPH McKINNEY of Reidsville 

Wentworth, NC (Dec. 5, 2018) – Local residents are top priorities for Rockingham County Government, so County Manager Lance Metzler thanks and honors local citizens with a "Boss of the Month" recognition.  Metzler announced today he is honoring Joseph McKinney of Reidsville as "Boss of the Month.”  

McKinney was the very first person in line to "give the gift of life" at the Dec. 5th Holiday Blood Drive, at Rockingham County Governmental Center, in Wentworth.  He participated in the blood drive to help with the current blood shortage.  A member of the Thomasville Baptist Church in the Williamsburg community, he thinks the real reason for the season is because of the birth of Jesus.

Born at Annie Penn Hospital, and a Reidsville Senior High School graduate, McKinney has been retired for eight years.  He enjoyed a rewarding career for several decades as an electrician at Commonwealth Brands and at American Tobacco.  
He has been married to his loving wife, Christine, for 52 years; they have one child and two grandchildren.

McKinney's Rockingham County hobbies are fishing and hunting deer.  His best fish story involved catching a 12-pound bass.

County Manager Metzler said honoring a resident visiting the County Governmental Center is a wonderful way to show the County's appreciation and to reinforce to County employees that their responsibility is to SERVE citizens.  Candid photos are shot of citizens visiting the Governmental Center in Wentworth.  Several framed photos of the selected "Boss of the Month" are displayed in the Governmental Center, via social media, local news outlets, and the County's homepage at
