North Raleigh, Cramer Mountain Celebrate Excellence
It’s never an easy decision, choosing a winner in each category for Carillon’s annual Best in Class awards. The winners for 2014 were especially deserving of accolades, as last year was one of exceptional performance across the board. The Best in Class awards are given annually to team members with stellar performance in their respective area of work, including nursing and care staff, dining, administration, maintenance, marketing and activities.
Congratulations to Myung Dixon and Lisa Biddix for their outstanding performance in 2014. Because of them, the seniors in their communities experienced the best that life has to offer.
Dining–Myung Dixon of Carillon of North Raleigh runs her kitchen like a 5-star restaurant, and her residents take notice.
“Myung is an artist when it comes to visual balance on the plate, and that is only surpassed by the flavor on your tongue,” said her manager, Regional Dining Director Bill Furnas. “Myung once ran a bustling, popular restaurant, and I think it shows. She walks in to the dining room in her pristine chef coat, with a smile from ear to ear, and she takes the time to educate her staff to develop their talents; all of which raises the level of dining experience to a whole new level.”
Activities–Lisa Biddix of Carillon of Cramer Mountain is known for her sunny disposition that can, and has, moved mountains for her residents.
“With Lisa, I don’t think it matters what the actual activity program is as much as how she treats people,” according to Executive Director Beverly Young. “People just want to be around Lisa. They participate more in community life because of Lisa. She makes everyone feel good about themselves, she’s so positive and uplifting that the impossible suddenly becomes possible. When you meet Lisa, she really sticks with you. You remember her, and gravitate back to her.”
