 Ocean Park Memory Care Community, on Parkview Drive in Brookings, celebrated its 12th anniversary with great fanfare in the month of August.  

The biggest highlight of the celebration was employee recognition. Several employees were honored. Compassion, motivation, dedication, attitude and loyalty were some of the main categories on which the employees were judged.

The Most Improved Care Giver award went to Leanna Grubbs. Autumn Niedorf, the assistant administrator, was recognized for her Administrative Leadership.

Besides her warm, happy and friendly personality, she was recognized for her pivotal role on the night shift. Third place winner, Angela Wilkins, was recognized for her leadership and exemplary performance on the morning shift. The runner up, Alexandria Silcox, was recognized for her versatility, hard work, dependability and her willingness to go beyond the call of duty.

Celeste Jerue was chosen as the Employee of the Year.  As the Administrative Team coordinator, Celeste is the “grease for Ocean Park’s wheels, keeping everything moving in the right direction.” She is also “the glue that holds everything together.”

Jerue and Silcox were awarded a one-week, all expense paid trip to Hawaii.
