Champion Winners



Kristi Hagen, Neighborhood Svcs, Wellness Champion of the Year

Kristi was amazing at coming up with so many different initiatives that supported physical, nutritional, emotional, social, spiritual, intellectual, financial, and environmental wellbeing. She worked hard to create connections for staff through activities and social emails. She kept me in the loop every step of the way and shared what she was doing along with educational materials and feedback she’d received. At one point I wondered if people thought the emails might be too much but from the end of year survey it was clear that was the best part for most!

Yvonne Gard and Elizabeth Thomas, MSO Ops Ctr, Wellness Champion Excellence Award

Yvonne and Elizabeth took the ideas we shared at last year’s banquet and ran with it! They scheduled and facilitated events every month for the whole year, and offered opportunities for employees to provide feedback, which they shared with me. I was just really proud of how they were open to trying something new with their coworkers, were creative and actually had people that wanted to participate 😊.

Molly White, GT Bray, Wellness Champion Excellence Award

Molly was so creative with her initiatives! So many were encouraged to participate - they began incorporating wellbeing initiatives into their day because of Molly’s events, emails, energy and attention. She too provided me with photos and updates throughout the year, and several positive testimonials.
