Murfreesboro, Tenn. – Murfreesboro Emergency Communications Supervisor Elizabeth Stubblefield has been named 2021 Public Safety Telecommunicator of the Year for her selfless actions, dedication, hard work.

Stubblefield takes pride in her work and is always willing to step up and help when needed.

“Stubblefield has an outstanding reputation with the Emergency Communicators Center and is highly deserving of this recognition,” Russell said.
