LOGAN’s “unsung heroes” honored

Employee Recognition Luncheon

Katie Bell, administrative assistant for the Sonya Ansari Autism Learning Center in Granger, received a standing ovation when she was named the first John Ayers Employee of the Year during the LOGAN Employee Recognition Luncheon in October. Grace Branch, a direct support professional in The Studios, received the Rosemary Beutel Award for exemplary service. About 30 other staff were honored for reaching 5-, 10-, 15- and 35-year milestones.

Dr. Virginia Calvin, guest speaker, called the honorees “unsung heroes” because of their unselfish service to others. “You are the glue; you’re not only the glue, you’re the glue gun of this organization,” she told her audience. “Isn’t it wonderful to be someone’s hero?”
