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:
Jean Wright, staff trainer, received the 2016 Core Award for Responsibility at the all-staff meeting in March. The recipient of the Core Award for Responsibility is someone who is accountable for self and others.
According to Wright’s nomination, “Jean goes above and beyond her work duties as a staff trainer to serve the ministry of MCH. Jean serves as the Mentor Committee co-chair. The growth of this program owes much to Jean’s leadership and responsibility. She repeatedly takes steps above and beyond what is expected, keeps the committee well informed, and helps us keep a high level of accountability to assure the success of the work we are trying to accomplish. She is always on top of things, well prepared, consistently helpful, and encouraging. Jean stands out as a person who exemplifies what it means to take on responsibilities at MCH to help this ministry succeed in all that it does.”
“I was humbled and thankful to receive the Core Value Award for Responsibility. There are many MCH employees who are far more deserving of this recognition, but it is especially meaningful to be acknowledged by your co-workers,” said Wright.
John Warren, training director and Wright’s supervisor had this to share, “It was no surprise that Jean was nominated for the Core Award for Responsibility. She is a valuable asset to the training department and to MCH. Responsibility is a characteristic that defined her both in her role as a youth care counselor (YCC) and now as a staff trainer. I am so proud to see her recognized, and excited to see how she will impact the agency in the future!”
