The Progress-Index Weekend - - LOCAL -

PRINCE GE­ORGE — Long­time Deputy Clerk Teresa Holt Knott has been ap­pointed Clerk to the Prince Ge­orge Board of Su­per­vi­sors.

Knott was sworn into the of­fice on Oct. 19 dur­ing a re­cep­tion in the Kines Break­room. She had been deputy clerk to the BOS and ex­ec­u­tive as­sis­tant to the County Ad­min­is­tra­tor since Au­gust 2004.

At its meet­ing on Oct. 9, the BOS changed the County or­di­nance and named Knott the clerk. County Ad­min­is­tra­tor Percy Ashcraft by state statute had pre­vi­ously been the County clerk, but the BOS unan­i­mously made the change upon the rec­om­men­da­tion by Ashcraft.

“It was time,” Ashcraft said. “Teresa has han­dled the re­spon­si­bil­i­ties of clerk since she was hired and has done a tremen­dous job. She does the day-to-day work of the po­si­tion so she should have the ti­tle.”

Knott is a na­tive of Prince Ge­orge County and a Prince Ge­orge High School grad­u­ate. She at­tended Old Do­min­ion Busi­ness School and re­ceived her cer­ti­fi­ca­tion as le­gal ad­min­is­tra­tive as­sis­tant. She is cur­rently work­ing on her Cer­ti­fi­ca­tion of Mu­nic­i­pal Clerk. In ad­di­tion, she at­tended Pub­lic Ad­min­is­tra­tion Mu­nic­i­pal Clerk In­sti­tute, and re­cently at­tended the Vir­ginia Com­mon­wealth Univer­sity Mu­nic­i­pal Clerk In­sti­tute this fall.

Prior to her em­ploy­ment with Prince Ge­orge County, she was a le­gal as­sis­tant in Rich­mond for 19 years; 14 years at McGuire Woods.

Knott is mar­ried to Bobby Knott and the cou­ple has two chil­dren, Hunter 25, and Han­nah 20.
