The Employee Recognition Committee (ERC) recommended Catherine Richards, Food Service Coordinator, Southern Pines Senior Center, Office on Aging, for Employee of the Month for April 2017.
Catherine was recognized for filling in at the front office at a time when Southern Pines was short staff. She took the initiative to enter all statistics on the center’s usage into the agency’s database. She was able to capture the data on thousands of senior participants. This provides the evidence to support state and federal grant applications that ensures continued funding for Calvert County seniors.
While filling in at the front, Catherine still continued to do her job as Food Service Coordinator and provided exceptional customer service to senior program participants. Her efforts saved other staff members valuable time and energy and helped ensure the efficient operation of Southern Pines.
Ed Sullivan, Program Manager, said “Catherine did an outstanding job on a daily basis. Her customer service is exemplary”.
The Calvert Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) presented Catherine Richards with a check and a certificate at their meeting on Tuesday, May 2, 2017.
