Meeks and honored for 39-years of service to the County was retiring Probate Judge Nancy H. Green.

Retiring Probate Judge Nancy Green told those in attendance at the drop-in that December 31st, will be her last day servicing as Probate Judge of Bamberg County. Ive been here for 39-years and its a bittersweet time for me, Judge Green said. Ive loved my job, Ive loved working with the people and Im going to step down and Sarah Guess Noel will take over.

Probate Judge Elect Sarah Guess Noel, who will be replacing Judge Green stated she will be filling some shoes that are nearly impossible to fill. Im going to miss Nancy very, very much, she has been an outstanding Probate Judge for the County and a wonderful citizen to all our folks. I love her and Im going to miss her.

Judge Noels Brother Clair P. Guess III, who elected not to run for another term on Bamberg County Council, thanked all the county employees for their service to the county noting, There is nothing more valuable than the gift of community service. It makes the community that much better and I thank all of you for that. Im available anytime any of you need my help, Guess said.
