Congratulations to the Employees of the Month! MIKE TOMA, GESHER (May) Mike sets the bar in terms of producing original programming and capitalizing on opportunities to grow in his work. For example, he served as an archery instructor trainer and single-handedly developed Stop-Motion Animation and Digital Photography classes.

RHIANNON SIMPSON, COFFEE SHOP (June) Rhiannon took the lead as the Coffee Shop began accepting credit cards. She worked with our vendor to learn the new system, developed written instructions, coached fellow staff members, and offered troubleshooting solutions, ultimately resulting in increased revenue for the JCC.
