Pinnacle Award

Last evening, we celebrated our Values in Action awardees from May 2014 through April 2015 (aka Employees of the Month).  The 12 awardees are invited to bring family, friends and co-workers to join with them in the celebration.  The evening culminates with selecting one of them as the Pinnacle Award winner (or Employee of the Year).  

The Values in Action Committee has to select the Pinnacle Awardee, which is a very challenging job.  These employees do some amazing things on the job as well as in their personal lives; they are truly stars.  We are so fortunate to have many of these types of individuals throughout WMHS and the Trivergent Health Alliance.  

Well, last evening our Pinnacle Award winner was Leona McTaggert, Activities Coordinator at Frostburg Nursing and Rehabilitation Center (FNRC).  She is the first Pinnacle Award winner from FRNC and we are thrilled with the outcome.  To hear her co-workers and residents say such wonderful things about her is so rewarding.  They say when she walks in the building or a room, she lights it up.  Leona goes above and beyond day after day to bring joy to lives of the FNRC residents, and we are honored to have her at FNRC.
