Heritage Village names 2013 employee of the year

GERRY – Heritage Village Retirement Campus and Heritage Ministries Management Company recently honored its 2013 employee of the year. Lonnie Clark, driver, was presented with a special award for his achievement.

Clark’s co-workers nominated him for this award. He began his Heritage career in September 2009, and since then, Clark has continually provided service with a smile.

Everyone at Heritage knows Clark, as he travels to each facility daily. With never a bad word to say, Clark usually arrives with a joke to tell the recipients of his deliveries.

One of his coworkers stated, “Lonnie always has a cheerful tune that he is singing, and he is always smiling.”

He exemplifies Heritage’s core values which state that they strive for: Respect for human dignity; excellence in everything they do; acceptance of every person; compassion for all; and honesty above all else.

Congratulations, Clark, on being named Heritage Village Retirement Campus and Heritage Ministries Management Company’s 2013 employee of the year!
