Shooting Star Nominations

Each month Aspire recognizes an outstanding employee that has been nominated for going above and beyond the basics of their job. 

The recognition doesn't stop there; the monthly winners are voted upon yearly to select our Simply the Best winner.  These winners are then submitted to the SD recognition award system, which if selected are then honored nationally.  In 2016 and again 2018 an Aspire employee was selected as the South Dakota Direct Support Professional of the Year and presented with that award at the national ANCOR conference.
