The red carpet was lined with stars at our 2014 Colleague Recognition Awards. Paparazzi snapped shot after shot of our Colleagues as they walked the red carpet, past Elvis, Marilyn, and Audrey making their way into the Indian Ridge Country Club on November 14.
The Hollywood-themed WOW! Magic evening featured awards galore, a delicious meal, music and dancing by NRG Entertainment, and great company!
The annual event is planned and put on by Colleagues for Colleagues. Three types of awards are handed out that evening; Years of Service Awards, Starfish Awards, and WOWzer! Awards.
The recipients of the WOWzer! Awards are hand-picked for the honor by President and CEO Tom Connors. These select few are chosen for their commitment to going above and beyond in their positions. These people have years of experience and dedication proving just how committed they are to delivering WOW! Magic, not only to those we serve, but to anyone and everyone we work with as well. WOWzer! winners exemplify the Mission and Values of American Training and are fundamental in bringing them to every aspect of the organization.
Starfish recipients are nominated by their peers for their commitment to making a difference in the lives of those around them.
Team: Leona Venuti, Noreen Duxbury, Martha Peguero, Ramona Pichardo
