Signature HealthCare of Spencer County recently hosted its Hall of Fame Café celebration to honor residents at the local nursing home.
The purpose of the Hall of Fame program is to recognize the outstanding accomplishments and experiences of the center’s residents. Employees, volunteers and community members are also honored for their contributions to the home and society as a whole.
This year’s honorees for SHC of Spencer County are:
• Virginia Waldridge: Virginia is a compassionate and dedicated stakeholder; she has served this community for 14 years.
• Lottie Wooten: Lottie, hardworking and dedicated, always held two to three jobs at a time, even while operating her own restaurant, “Lottie’s.”
• Carol Kennedy: As an RN, Carol was the Chief of Recovery for St. Anthony’s for 25 years, managing the duties of 16 nurses on her staff.
• Phillip Sharp: Phillip has been involved in church ministry for more than 70 years; he founded New Hope Tabernacle in Taylorsville.
SHC of Spencer County is one of 87 locations operated by Louisville-based Signature HealthCare. Launched in 2003, the Hall of Fame event is hosted annually by each Signature home at different times throughout the year. This year, Signature took a different approach by having each center host its Hall of Fame ceremony on the same day, creating a synchronized, company-wide event.
“Our residents have given so much to their hometowns and our nation, and these contributions deserve to be celebrated,” said Signature President and CEO Joe Steier. “The Hall of Fame Café induction ceremonies are a small way for us to say ‘thanks.’ ”
SHC of Spencer County’s Hall of Fame celebration was Friday, Nov. 1.
