Cline Wins 2009 ACTS Presidents Award

Tryon Estates Employee in Columbus Selected Among 5,000 for Top Honor

Sandy Cline was recently selected from more than five thousand employees in six states as a 2009 ACTS Retirement-Life Communities Presidents Award winner.

A dedicated licensed practical nurse in OakBridge Terrace located on the Tryon Estates retirement community in Columbus, Cline receives one weeks additional paid vacation, a travel voucher for $2,750 and an engraved crystal Presidents Bowl signifying the honor.

In addition, her picture will be prominently displayed at the life care retirement community for the next year.

The ACTS Presidents Award recognizes excellence in service to residents, concern and support for fellow employees, attitude and work performance. Marvin Mashner, ACTS President and CEO, flew to North Carolina from the corporate office in Pennsylvania to offer his personal congratulations to Cline on this well deserved award.

Sandy exemplifies the ACTS philosophy of loving-kindness and dedicated service to seniors by her willingness to go above and beyond the call of duty each and every day,

Mashner said to a crowd of co-workers, residents and family members at Tryon Estates who gathered for a surprise ceremony held in Clines honor.

ACTS should be proud of Sandy as she represents and fulfills the pledge indicated by the mission statement, wrote Tryon resident Nathan Hubley, Jr.

I am writing on behalf of the family of Lionel and Martha Garrison who moved into OakBridge Terrace in 2002. Without exception, we have found Sandy to be dedicated, hard working, compassionate and willing to take the time to discuss with us any issues. She is a unique gift to us and our parents, said Joanna Isherwood.
