Methodist Children’s Home Core Values are:
Dennis Tynes, security officer, received the 2015 Core Award for Service at the all-staff meeting in October. The recipient for the Core Award for Service is someone who shows compassion through generosity and care.
According to Tynes’s nomination, “Dennis has worked for MCH for 31 years and has been vigilant about keeping the MCH campus safe. He takes pride in his job performance and work ethic. When unexpected duties arise he is always willing to ‘step up’ and take them on. Dennis has an excellent rapport with staff and youth. He is calm when interacting with youth and makes well thought out decisions concerning the best course of action to take and immediately takes the proper action needed. Dennis has always been a leader, not only for MCH but for the City of Waco. He is well respected by other officers and staff, and has been a positive role model for our youth.”
“I was very humbled to receive this award. MCH has been a wonderful place to work,” said Tynes.
Gary Freeman, director of security and Tynes supervisor had this to share, “Dennis has a sincere appreciation for the work being done at MCH. I know from working with him he is thankful for his time here at MCH and how well he personally has been treated. Dennis is devoted to his job and conducts himself in a professional Christian manner.”
