James Donald, commissioner of the Georgia Department of Corrections presented Melissa Killough with the Commissioner’s Leadership Coin in recognition of her outstanding performance as director of Spectrum’s 384-bed treatment program at the Bainbridge Probation Substance Abuse Treatment Center. Ms. Killough has worked for Spectrum since 2001.

“I believe that true leadership is action, not position. Guided by the principles of excellence, integrity, and selfless services, your actions enable us to achieve this critical mission,” wrote Commissioner Donald. “Your success is not an accident; it results from a deliberate process of identifying a compelling purpose, passionately pursuing your vision, and performing at your best.”
