In addition to the award, during the TCA Board Meeting held on Sunday, June 4, 2023, TCA President-Elect Rene Hinojosa nominated Ms. Nelson to a director position on the Texas Corrections Association Board of Directors.

“Even before joining the Texas Corrections Association, Ms. Nelson was successful in supporting the corrections profession. Jennifer continues to support and innovate community supervision practices utilized right here in Williamson County,” said Jameson Pennington, director of Williamson County CSCD and vice president of the Texas Corrections Association.

“Having Williamson County CSCD employees involved in professional organizations, such as TCA, provides increased opportunities for the CSCD to make an even greater impact on public safety in our Williamson County community,” said Nelson. “As one of the most successful CSCDs in the state, Williamson County CSCD provides client-centered supervision practices that continue to positively impact the Williamson County community. I’m honored that Mr. Lumpkin chose me for this prestigious award, and I’m thrilled to accept a position on the TCA Board. I’m confident that continuing to expand my knowledge as a community supervision professional will have a direct correlation on the supervision services provided to offenders in Williamson County,” Nelson said.
