Methodist Children’s Home (MCH) annually recognizes staff who exemplify our Core Values. Staff are nominated by their peers and recognized at an all-staff meeting.
The Core Values for MCH are:
Susan Beatty, director of database operations in Development, received the 2017 Core Award for Responsibility at the all-staff meeting this fall. The recipient of the Core Award for Responsibility is someone who is accountable for self and others.
According to her nomination, Beatty models the Core Value of Responsibility by always being accountable for her work and the work of her team. In her position, Susan is responsible for making sure that donor records are accurate and up-to-date, which requires her to be thorough, efficient and organized. Even during the busiest time of year, Susan and her team do a great job of staying on top of gift and donor information to make sure it is readily available when needed.
On top of her day-to-day duties, Beatty is the go-to person in Development who takes care of any needs in the building, whether it is submission of work orders, leading emergency drills, or maintaining office supplies. She is quick to offer a helping hand to any of her coworkers. With her welcoming attitude of service, Beatty warmly greets any visitors coming to Perkins and enjoys giving tours or assisting alumni and their relatives in search of photographs in old Sunshine magazines.
According to her coworkers, “Susan has a cheerful and kind spirit that makes her a joy to work with every day. She is diligent, friendly and encouraging. Susan will ask for your opinion when it comes to gifts or any other job duty that includes the entire office. She is a very giving person and very passionate about her job.”
