May 03, 2013 -- 5:31am

A change in career paths more than a decade ago, from testing school children then to testing water samples today, has led one Sussex County employee to top honors in her field of work.

Ann Hobbs, a wastewater operator and laboratory manager for the South Coastal Regional Wastewater Facility near Bethany Beach, was honored Thursday as the Delaware Wastewater Operator of the Year during a ceremony at the Delaware Technical Community College-Owens Campus in Georgetown.

Hobbs was selected by the college for the honor from a field of nine nominees from across the First State. There are 459 licensed operators in Delaware.
