2015 EMPLOYEE OF THE YEAR (Direct Care/Line Staff)   
John Reid, Maintenance

When I see John he is always hard at work. Every morning John checks in with the community center to make sure everything is ready for the day. He always greets our members with a smile and is always there to help when things get messy. John is always willing to help employees when there’s an issue with facilities and does so with joy and never a complaint. His response to problems is always positive and immediate. During his time with us we have had several incidents where he responded quickly to save us time and protect our property.  John has gone out of the way to make the work place a positive place to be and makes sure everyone knows they are appreciated. In all the years I have been at The Arc no maintenance crew has been better. John is a great asset to our agency, and we are thankful he is a part of our team.

2015 EMPLOYEE OF THE YEAR (Leadership)
Brandy Willey, Supported Living

Brandy has been a site manager in Supported Living for two years after working as a CLI and a lead.  Brandy has a saying: “I can’t withstand the waves of the ocean, but I can learn to surf.” Brandy handles the little and big waves with commitment to the participants, fairness to her staff, attention to detail, and a lot of integrity. Brandy never asks her staff to do anything she wouldn’t do herself. She displays a work ethic that inspires others and warrants a great deal of respect.  She has always done everything in her power to ensure all participants’ dreams become a reality no matter how many hours it takes. Brandy is a wonderful advocate for her participants, cares deeply for them and their families, and is kind and thoughtful about their needs. It has become apparent that supporting our participants is not just a job to her but a way of life. Her level of commitment and professionalism contributes to the outstanding quality of our services. She is truly a perfect example of an outstanding employee of The Arc.
