Lisa Anderson was awarded Employee of the Year 2021.

Kathy was actually nominated twice for two different situations. One was a testimonial from a HANDS parent who sang her praises and thanked her for her services and kindness. The second nomination was from a co-worker who Kathy helped when the co-worker was involved in a scary and very inconvenient traffic accident.

Michelle Wesley was recently named the February 2022 Employee of the Month.
