Employee of the Quarter Winner

You voted and we counted.  The envelope please... and the winner for the employee of the quarter goes to Employee B, better known as Patrick H.

This seasoned staff member impresses people not only in his home department but also in the program where he regularly subs.  He frequently saves the day in both programs by dropping his schedule and driving anywhere needed around North County, often times at the last minute.  He provides whatever direct service is needed based on each person’s individual situation, and has done it all … from attending sporting events to providing personal care to assisting with wedding planning.  He certainly has mastered the knack of switching hats, and is very much appreciated by all those he interacts with on a daily basis.

And for your extra effort and initiative you will receive the coveted front row parking and two movie passes!
