Each month Aspire collects outstanding employee recognition called Shooting Star nominations.  These are voted upon and awarded at our monthly staff meeting.  All of the monthly award winners are voted upon each year to select our yearly Shooting Star Award winner.

As an Admin Assistant, Amanda does  lot for everyone in the agency. But this year, in addition to her regular duties, teaching classes for new employee orientation and collecting and organizing data for the agency's strategic plan..Amanda has willingly taken on extra tasks that she has put her personal mark on. Nope, she's not making more money per hour to do this!  She has willingly accepted the challenge because she is excited about putting her creativity to work to benefit Aspire.

Here are a few things I am appreciative of...

  • Monthly Newsletter - Amanda has added photos, more personalized information and energy to what used to be my very BORING newsletter. Much improvement
  • Creative Expressions Sales Gallery - Amanda has worked to organize photos of art created to help Marianne and her artists with making prints, cards and having a section of our website to advertise merchandise for sale. 
  • Website - Amanda is working to give our website a fresh look and devoting time each month to update information to maintain a fresh appearance. People looking at stories on Facebook will be directed back to the website, driving more traffic and linking people to other information about Aspire. This project is MONTHS in the making. 

It takes an extreme amount of planning, concentration (that does not come easily with the volume of interruptions that constantly occur in the front lobby area), and overall knowledge about the agency. Amanda has the insight to look for opportunities that weren't present, from fundraising, to art sales to recognizing our employees, to employee recruitment and retention.

THANK YOU Amanda for these efforts. While everything is not done, your efforts have not gone unnoticed.
