Atkinson: She was nominated by her director for all the extra work and planning she provided for Health Week while her director was on vacation, ensuring that partners, residents and patients enjoyed the celebration.

Minor: She was nominated by her manager for having had a huge impact in the first three weeks of her employment as a phlebotomist. She stepped up and took on the training and workload like a pro.
