  • Vicky Mehrwerth

    Administrative Assistant, Covenant Living of Golden Valley

    I wanted to let Vicky know how much her efforts for the annual Christmas Craft Fair were to the community. Vicky not only ran our sales table for a good share of the day on Saturday but she also was responsible for working the Philanthropy table for a coworker that wasn't available to do so. Thanks Vicky for taking your whole Saturday to help out. It didn't go unnoticed.

  • Jordan Holliday

    Dietitian, Covenant Living of the Great Lakes

    Jordan noticed a tour for Assisted Living with a prospect in the dining room. Jordan approached and offered refreshments. The prospect was looking for his wife and the thought of living separately was distressing. He asked for an orange juice and was grateful. The care and attention was welcoming and help set the tone for the rest of the visit. Thank you Jordan for your hospitality!

  • Mason Hoeksema

    Security Guard, Covenant Living at Windsor Park

    Mason encountered a difficult family member, frustrated as he tried to reach him mother in rehab after hours. The family member was inappropriately challenging making some concerning comments. Mason did the best he could to diffuse the situation. What I found most impressive was Mason's desire to seek guidance on how he could have handled it even better. Being responsive, concerned about the image and the best solutions is very admirable. We are grateful to have you on the team!

  • Joanne Elenbaas

    Director of Sales, Covenant Living of the Great Lakes

    Joann assisted me in a big and unexpected way in August 2022. I am a little late in my acknowledgement. I arrived on campus minus a colleague who needed to stay back due to illness. I therefore needed to follow up on items and materials. Joann gave me a space to work, a resource (sales assistant) and materials and tools. She went out of her way to check in on me to make sure I had what I needed, even though that was not part of her plan for the day. Her gracious help and support allowed me to execute on an important task I was there to do!
