Methodist Children’s Home recognizes staff who have demonstrated our core values in their work with the youth and families we serve. We will feature the recent award recipients in upcoming blog posts. The following is an excerpt from the nomination of Nicole Ehler for the Christian Principles award. Nicole serves as director of program services for the Boys Ranch.
“Nicole epitomizes Methodist Children’s Home core values by living and teaching Christian principles, building healthy and trusting relationships with our students, taking responsibility and accountability for self and others, providing opportunities for growth in spirit, mind and body, and helping the students she serves to believe in themselves and the possibility of a bright future. Nicole consistently presents herself in a responsible, polite and gracious manner with a healthy dose of common sense. She speaks respectfully and calmly with both staff and students and always acknowledges the needs of others and seeks their input on decisions. Her professionalism and creativity are boundless as she strives to provide meaningful, educational and fun activities for MCH students, such as the Ranch Stampede, Fall Festival and Community Chapel Service and Lunch. Nicole is a greatly valued staff member, mentor and friend, and the Boys Ranch is honored and blessed to have her as part of our team.”

I love working with the Boys Ranch youth. The boys always exceed my expectations. I am challenged and appreciated, and I cannot help but want to do a good job when I am surrounded by such great people.
