Mohawk Opportunities hosted its annual agency forum on May 21st, 2019. This year Executive Director Joseph Gallagher gave a speech about the culture of caring and how that pertains to everything we do here at Mohawk Opportunities, including how we serve clients and their families. During the forum staff members were able to hear about new changes to happen in the future and to have any concerns addressed. The forum is also a time to celebrate employees who have stood out during this past year. Awards recipients were selected by their peers for the Spirit of Teamwork, Spirit of Caring, Spirit of Recovery, Spirit of Collaboration, and Spirit of Leadership Awards. Awards were given to Jessica Reichelt, Gerald Griffin, Taylor Halpin, Meghan Duffy, Danielle O’Brien, Megan Dolan, Bryan Gentile and Emina Stocevic.

The criterion includes: Quality, Integrity, Creativity, and Responsiveness. Each winner was given a certificate, a $50 bonus check, and their name on a plaque as a thank you for all the hard work that they have demonstrated.
