Awards Committee

Improve staff engagement and job satisfaction through highlighting fellow employees with appreciation.


Recognize a peer for going above and beyond the call of duty!

When you fill out the form a certificate of gratitude sent to the person and their name is listed on the website for a long time! It only takes a moment, and a simple "I appreciate you" is usually enough to brighten someone's day.

This is open to all staff members, full-time, part-time… it doesn't matter. Let's celebrate the hard work and dedication our staffers give every day. We look forward to seeing your nominations!
