– 2021 Evergreen Woods Supernova Winner –
The Supernova Award is the highest individual honor that our company gives and each year. One individual on the leadership team at Evergreen Woods is voted by their colleagues as the community’s Supernova based on an assortment of criteria. Each year during the Senior Living Communities Annual Meeting, the winner is revealed and given a customized crystal award at the company’s formal Supernova Awards Evening. The criteria for voting is based on upholding our company’s mission to be caring professionals dedicated to quality services. Additionally, this individual will consistently deliver excellent customer service (to Members, families, and colleagues), lead positively with integrity, take accountability, put the team before themselves, and embody the company’s vision to create communities where people live longer, healthier, and happier lives.
This year, we are proud to congratulate our Director of Dining Services, Patty Troidle, as the recipient of the 2021 Evergreen Woods Supernova Award.
