OSU's Day of Caring
OSU's Day of Caring took place Sept 19th, 2016.
The Center for Civic Engagement partnered with us and sent 12 volunteer students out to our Gleicher program and our 29th Street program.
The students helped with yard clean up and planting fall flowers in the ground and in planters.
It was a fantastic day and we were able to distribute fall planters to several programs.
Day of Caring Project was a success and Benco is very thankful for the hard work of all of these compassionate students!
Employee of the Month!
of Rolf Hansen Apartments.
I am nominating Nia DeShon for employee of the month for many reasons.
Nia is the most consistent coworker I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with. She is very punctual, showing up to all scheduled shifts on time, and to my recollection has very seldom, if ever, called in sick since I have worked at Rolf Hansen. She has consistently covered shifts and has been incredibly flexible when it comes to coverage at the shortest of notice when there are scheduling conflicts. She very clearly has created a high standard for herself, even devoting time to special tasks outside of her routine that she follows through with on every shift she works and sets an example that deserves a great amount of respect. I’ve observed first hand that she presents herself as warm, open-minded, thoughtful and respectful to all of her coworkers and clients alike. Nia demonstrates advocacy with grace as an inherit quality of her character toward those who she cares for. She is confident in the decisions she makes, and does so wisely. Her attitude is sincere and humble when it comes to how she views her environment at Rolf Hansen and exemplifies positivity as often as she can. Nia gets along with everyone she works with, even in difficult instances of interpersonal conflicts. She is incredibly creative and often a very imaginative problem solver, being well versed in the way of inconsistent logistics.
Above all of these great qualities, I think that Nia is invaluable when it comes to advocacy, being comfortable in embracing client choices and independence, with situations that others may find unapproachable.
Nia is exemplary of the calling that is care giving.
