Williamson County Clerk Nancy Rister’s Office was presented the Five Star Vital Registration Award by the Texas Department of State Health Services, Vital Statistics Unit. This award was presented during the Annual Conference on Vital Statistics online December 7 to 9, 2021, for exemplary work in the area of Vital Registration. The criteria for qualifications of this award include timeliness of filing registrations entered into the state database by the clerk’s office, annual training at conferences, use of the Texas Electronic Registrar (TER) for all births and deaths and completing an assessment survey. 

This year's competition included over 341 local registrars, out of which there were only 56 local registrars across the state that met the five specific criteria needed to achieve this prestigious award. One hundred twenty-seven were county clerks' offices who met the exemplary designation. 

Two employees in the Vital Statistics, Cynthia Tidwell and Marlen Rossetti, were specifically mentioned for their contributions making this award possible.

The staff received recognition in the Commissioners Court meeting on Tuesday, Jan. 18, 2022.
