Parks and Recreation Supervisor Nicholas Coleman was named city of Destin’s 2015 employee of the year at the end of year celebration last week. Coleman has served the city for 12 years and this was his first time being honored with the award.

“I’ve worked with Nick for so long and he has worked his way completely through the system, he started out as an intern in college,” said Director of Parks and Recreation Lance Johnson. “I don’t know anybody who is more dedicated to what they do than Nick. He will do anything he can to help people enjoy their experience. He’s all in and believes in it and he really sets a good example for the entire department.”

When asked his reaction to the award, Coleman said he was humbled.

“It’s an honor just to be nominated,” said Coleman. “It’s voted on by colleagues and supervisors so to be thought of is a blessing. I enjoy what I do and I have great people that help me.”
