Missy Calhoun was named an Agemark “Hero” for 2020. The award was presented in a virtual awards banquet held on February 18. Calhoun was just one of six Agemark employees given the honor. Agemark employs nearly 800 individuals in 25 communities across 5 states.
Calhoun, the Dining Services Manager at Evergreen in Dickinson, ND, has served in her role since 2012. As Dining Services Manager, she shares love with Evergreen residents through the delicious food she makes from scratch.
Calhoun says, “I am so thankful to work for a company that gives out awards for people who love their jobs,” Calhoun said. “I really truly love our residents. I feel like I have tons of grandpas and grandmas! I think people see the compassion that I have for them and it’s an honor to be recognized for that. Agemark is an amazing company to work. They truly care and make it all about residents and our people.”
Agemark CEO Marty Hug says people like Calhoun are the reason for Agemark’s continued success. “We know that the most valuable part of our company is not our assets, it’s our people. We are confident that our employees are truly the best in the industry. Each day, they are tasked with the most important thing we can do in our position as a provider of senior living – change the lives of our residents for the better. We’re proud that Missy is part of our team!”
