2023 Event Sparkled with Joy
What a thrill being with our colleagues for the 2023 Employee Award Celebration! For the first time since 2019, we gathered in-person for the awards ceremony and celebration of staff who give their all to ensure that the people we support live their best lives.
“We are here today to celebrate the people who help us achieve our dreams,” said Matt Starr. The event kicked off with a big Jubilee welcome from Executive Director Steve Keener.
Employees won awards in both individual and team categories. Community members who made outstanding contributions as volunteers, physicians, and neighbors also received awards.
In presenting the Family Partnership Award, Jubilee’s Director of Human Resources Krista Ogburn shared that “this award is so important because our staff are nominated for this award by the families of the people we support. It shows we have their trust.”
People came dressed to impress, adding extra sparkle and shine to the celebration, held at Pinstripes in Rockville. Attendees were treated to a delicious lunch thanks to our friends at DARCARS Automotive Group. In addition to the award presentation and luncheon, employees were entered into a raffle for prizes including a big screen TV! Thank you to our sponsors James, Margie and Mitch Billian, Kensington Natural Smiles, Lafayette Federal Credit Union, Nesfield Performance, Pink Dot Styles, and Tumbleweed Rustic.
