Congratulations to Victor Kargbo for being voted the Employee of the Month!
Since 2003, Victor Kargbo makes what may seem is the impossible, possible.
Recognized by Opengate staff members as the point person to call when assistance is needed, Victor always tries his best. For example, Victor is helpful within the Opengate community IRAs, the Maintenance Department, as well as outside agencies including Cardinal McCloskey Services and the Hudson Valley DDSO.
Victor’s fellow employees describe him as a great team player, especially during times with staffing issues. If help is needed, such as medical appointments, Victor will be sure to make it happen.
During the past 15 years Victor has worked in the Opengate Day Habilitation Program as a Direct Support Professional for 4 years, a Lead Counselor for 6 years, and in his current position as Program Manager for 5 years.
In 2014 Victor was elected by his peers as the Employee of the Year and it is nice to see that his dedication to Opengate remains consistently strong.
Also nominated by peers for Employee of the Month were Winslow Pink for his leadership, knowledge, & dedication and John Smith for going above and beyond his regular duties and making individuals comfortable.
