St. Paul’s Recognizes Four with Distinguished Staff Awards

Monday, November 11, 2019


St. Paul’s recognized four staff members for exceptional service and performance during a ceremony on Nov. 6 in the Headland Friendship Commons at The Villas. Nancy Provident, Personal Care Attendant at The Heritage, received the Staff Extra Effort Award; Deb Canter, Dining Aide at The Heritage received the Staff Dining Award; Kenzi Kerins, Certified Nurse Aide at The Villas received the Staff Leader Award; and JoAnne Kroner, Care Partner for St. Paul’s Without Walls, received the Staff Newcomer Award.

The awards are presented each year and seek to recognize and show appreciation for staff that improve and enrich the lives of the residents at St. Paul's Senior Living Community.

The Bingham Family Awards were established in memory of Jack and Mary Jane Bingham who were residents at St. Paul’s. Upon their deaths, the Bingham’s children chose to honor their parents’ memory. The Hazel L. Shaffer Endowment Fund Award was established in 2012 by the Shaffer family as a result of the "wonderful care Hazel Shaffer received from the dining staff while a resident at the former health center, now The Heritage."  

A record 51 different staff members were nominated for awards this year. Chris Wright, CEO and President stated, “Each year it is certainly a daunting task to choose these award recipients, as all of our nominees are extremely worthy and important team members.”
