Libby Ruth named probation/parole manager in Stanly, Union counties

MONROE -- Secretary Theodis Beck has named Libby Ruth judicial district manager for the Division of Community Corrections in District 20B, which includes Stanly and Union counties. The appointment becomes effective September 1.

"Libby Ruth has more than 25 years experience in community corrections," said Secretary Beck. "I am confident that she will be a good leader for District 20B."

Ruth began her career in community corrections in 1975 as an intern in the Robeson County Probation Office. She enjoyed the work so much that she signed on full-time after graduating from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 1978. She served as a probation officer in Robeson and Mecklenburg counties before being name unit supervisor in Union County in 1989. In 1999, she took a temporary job assignment as a quality assurance specialist for Department of Correction computer applications. After working with computers for the last few years, she looks forward to the challenge of operating a community corrections office.

"I would like for District 20B to be one of the top districts in the state in terms of operation and community involvement," says Ruth. In order to achieve that, Ruth reminds the officers under her supervision to be fair and consistent, to follow policy and to be team players.

Ruth replaces Nebraska Massey, who retired as judicial district manager for District 20B effective July 1, 2002.
