Hamilton earned special recognition for her grit and determination during the academy, earning the Natalie Corona award, named after slain Davis Police Officer Natalie Corona. She was presented the award by Corona’s parents. Sheriff Shannan Moon was in attendance to cheer on the new deputies during the ceremony and awards, along with fellow command staff. The three deputies officially started their careers with the Nevada County Sheriff's Office just after Christmas.
