As described by HR Manager, Michelle Belcher, “The reason this award is so special is because of everyone that surrounds this individual. As part of our WOW program, associates have the option to nominate their coworker for doing an outstanding job, and for going above and beyond what is expected of them. This award means so much to the person being recognized because it is through their peers that they receive it.”

Before presenting the award, Rob and Curtis addressed the team as a whole, acknowledging that today wouldn’t be possible if it wasn’t for everyone’s great work and support. Following up on these remarks, LB shared his gratitude for his team’s hard work and for Maria’s accomplishment:

“I’ve had the pleasure of having this individual work with me for the past three years. She has been in multiple roles and has come through as someone I trust and rely on every single day. I am extremely proud of and excited for this person and I hope that everyone who knows who this person is will emulate her hard work and dedication.”
