We are very happy to announce the May Employee of the Month!
Sharon Oloo, Lead Counselor at ICF Gray.
Sharon received 3 nominations recognizing her dedication. She did not hesitate to volunteer to be quarantined with our first Individual exhibiting symptoms of Covid-19, and went on to volunteer a total of 3 times at different Residences and spent 28 days on campus during the Pandemic.
Sharon never complained or showed any displeasure regardless of how unpleasant the situation became but continued to be steadfast in her commitment to caring for our Individuals. During her second quarantine, she became ill, but continued to check on the Individuals that were in her care while recuperating at home, and would also offer words of encouragement to the management team.
Once Sharon was cleared to return to work she did not hesitate to volunteer a third time to quarantine at another house. She always made sure to communicate with the families and offered emotional support and encouragement to her peers.
Sharon has been a valued member of the Opengate family for the past 7 years and has proven to be a caring team player who believes in our vision and mission. Her tenacity, positive attitude, and work ethic in a very difficult time are unmatched.
Sharon, thank you for all that you do with the Individuals we serve.
This recognition is well-deserved.
Employee of the Month award recipients receive a $100 bonus as a token of Opengate’s appreciation.
