Georgia Dovshek

Correctional Employee of the Year, Washington County Jail

We're thrilled to celebrate a true champion among us—Georgia Dovshek, the Food Services Manager at Washington County Jail. In the world of corrections, food service can significantly influence mood and morale, making it a critical factor. Concerns about food quality also rank among the most prevalent complaints received by the Prison Society from individuals incarcerated in county prisons.

Georgia’s dedication to using clean, fresh ingredients and maintaining an impeccable kitchen fosters an atmosphere of dignity and respect. Beyond her culinary talents, Georgia's impact is transformative. She shares holiday joy through special meals, empowers inmates with culinary skills, and cultivates a sense of community that vendors like Aramark can't replicate.

With this award, we honor Georgia's unwavering commitment to health, safety, and dignity behind bars. Her contributions enrich lives and perfectly embody our values.

Join Us At Love Above Bars!

We'll be honoring Georgia and all of our annual award winners in person at our annual LOVE ABOVE BARS event on Wednesday, September 27, 2023, at World Café Live in Philadelphia. Event guests will enjoy heavy hors oeuvres, wine and beer, entertainment, and a brief program.

We are thrilled to celebrate with “pay what you wish” tickets for the reception as well as sponsorship opportunities that allow organizations to showcase their support for the Prison Society’s work. Guests must register in advance to attend the event. Click here for tickets and sponsorships.
