Local judge executive honored by Kentucky Department of Corrections

Lyon County Judge-Executive Wade White was presented with an award last week by the Kentucky Department of Corrections, the DOC announced. 

White received the Lucille Hurt Robuck “Commitment to Corrections” Award during the DOC’s annual luncheon in Lexington. The department says White got the award in recognition of his efforts to improve the salary of corrections officers though his Pay the Badge campaign

The award is named for former Kentucky parole board chairwoman and juvenile court systems judge Lucille Hurt Robuck, who passed away in March 2005. The DOC says Robuck devoted her entire career to the field of criminal justice. The award is presented annually to an individual the DOC says has made an outstanding contribution to the corrections field in the past year.
