Carmack honored for years of service to Collierville

Lynn Carmack

At the June 22, meeting of the Board of Mayor and Alderman, Town Administrator James Lewellen made a special presentation to Lynn Carmack for her years of service as Collierville’s town clerk.

Lewellen noted that though the service pin he was presenting Carmack was for 20 years of service, he was really honoring her actual 29 years of total service to the Town of Collierville.

She was hired as a part-time typist in 1986, then became a full time clerk in 1987. In February 1995, Carmack resigned from the town. Three months later, on June 12, 1995, she returned as an administrative secretary and was happily received. Carmack was appointed town clerk in 1998.

“Lynn has one of the hardest jobs in town,” said Lewellen. “She is responsible for all the records of the town. She is responsible for making sure that everything that happens here tonight is recorded accurately, and is recorded for historic access for the public and for the Board of Mayor and Aldermen. She’s done that since 1998, and she’s done it better than anyone else in Tennessee.”

Carmack’s career has many highlights. She has served as both president and vice-president of the Tennessee Association of Municipal Clerks and Recorders and was given their “Distinguished Service Award” in 2013. She is also a member of the International Institute of Municipal Clerks, and has earned certification as both a Municipal Clerk and a Master Municipal Clerk.

In recent years, she has been key in implementing technology that makes Collierville’s public records more accessible to citizens. She’s also a graduate of the 2007 Leadership Collierville class.
