News & Notes: Monarch honors DSPs statewide

7--DSP-appreciationAcross the country, direct support professionals (DSPs) maintain trusted relationships with millions of people with disabilities supported each day. During the week of Sept. 7-13, Monarch managers and supervisors celebrated DSPs with events and meals to recognize the tremendous work they do and the trusted relationships they have with people with disabilities.

The following are a few examples of the kind of celebrations that were held to honor staff:

Lighthouse Club Staff showered their DSPs with snacks, cookies, donuts and gift certificates throughout the week.

Forsyth Industrial Systems managers Beth Myers and Gloria Hunder cooked eggs during a DSP Appreciation Breakfast, and staff enjoyed grits, eggs, sausage, bacon, biscuits and donuts.

Managers from the Triad area (Region 5), showed appreciation to their staff by giving them hand-written thank-you notes, snacks, gift cards, lunch, roses and governor’s certificates. Thirteen staff members were presented with the framed and signed certificate from N.C. Gov. Pat McCrory, along with a gift basket, during a luncheon.

Managers from Middleton and Green Street homes in Moore County made certificates for staff members and presented them with thank- you cards and a 2015 pocket calendar.
