Unsung Workplace Heroes Honored for Good Character

TC Palm Luminaries

United Way of Martin County’s Character Counts! program recently honored nine exceptional people with an Employee Pillar of Character Award.

During the past 13 years dozens of individuals have been recognized for their outstanding work ethic and for exemplifying the Six Pillars of Character, the character traits that are the cornerstone of the program.

“The awards program is for employees who consistently set good examples,” said Holly Laiben, Director. “Many employees have strong work ethics and go above and beyond their job description on a daily basis without expecting or receiving adequate recognition.”

Winners received a restaurant gift certificate, provided by The Firefly Group.

Employee Pillar of Character Award Winners: Janis Burley, SLC Commercial; Wade Diekman, Brothers’ Construction, Inc.; Elizabeth Hunter, Law Office of Sheila Biehl; and Olivia Labrador, The Children’s Museum of the Treasure Coast; Kim Martin-Gaudet, Mary’s Shelter of the Treasure Coast; Bryan McLaughlin, Law Office of Sheila Biehl; Cindy Simpson, The Patrick Stracuzzi Real Estate Team; George Stokus, Martin County Airport, Martin County BOCC; Pat Toner, H2O Kids Swim School, H2O KATS
