Employee of the Month – Jesse Satterfield!

Congratulations to Jesse Satterfield our Employee of The Month for March 2017!

We are very excited to announce our Employee of the Month for March 2017 as none other than Jesse Satterfield of the Lincoln Branch!

Enough couldn’t be said about his “go the extra mile” attitude. This month Jesse’s peers spotlighted his efforts from making sure he assisted the Housekeeping Department every morning transporting super heavy bags for dumping, to remaining at the Lincoln Branch until  1:00 AM to open the doors so that the Hawaii team could get in safely, to conducting All Star practices at 6:00 AM, to organizing and hosting the annual Biddy Banquet, to leading a safe excursion to the Biddy Classic in Palm Springs last weekend and all in the month of March!

Jesse’s commitment and dedication to the Club are on display and it has positively impacted the lives of so many of our kids, their families and his co-workers.

Congratulations to you, Jesse!
