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:
Nicole Hall, administrative secretary in the Killeen MCH Family Outreach office, 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, Hall models the Core Value of Responsibility through her commitment to the mission of MCH and through the numerous ways she goes above and beyond her daily responsibilities to see that families are connected to resources and that the local community is familiar with our presence.
Hall has been an anchor for the Killeen Outreach team since July 2016 when she spent her first few months building furniture, decorating the office, organizing materials and collecting local community response information when the office was just opening.
According to her supervisor and director of the Killeen office, Violet Read, Nicole frequently provides the Killeen team information about resources she has identified online or through social media groups. When families call looking for resources beyond MCH services, she researches and follows up with families. Earlier this year, Hall spent several hours corresponding with local shelters to help a family secure a place to stay. That family stopped by the Outreach office to thank Hall for her kindness and willingness to help when no one else would.
“Nicole’s humble demeanor never demands the spotlight,” Read said. “However, the responsibility she assumes in the workplace for both her and the entire team’s success is worthy of recognition. I am so very thankful for the opportunity to work alongside her every day!”
