Grinning from ear to ear as she showed off the new shoes, purchased with one of the many gifts give to her as the Washington Regional Medical Center's Employee of the Month, Pat Harnish told us about her award. She sat in their meeting listening as the Human Resource Manager talked of the employee being honored and was suddenly struck by the fact that they were speaking about her. Even as they began to give her all of her awards, Pat was still questioning, "You sure it's me?" In addition to receiving an Employee of the Month plaque, Pat received cash, gift cards from Walmart, Jose's, AQ Chicken House, Spring Street Grill, and Powerhouse Seafood.
Here at Habitat for Humanity we have always known that Pat is a hard working woman. She has been in her home for 15 years. Because of our generous community and her hard work, Pat was able to raise her 3 children in a stable, safe home. Each month we look forward to her bringing in her mortgage and chatting about life. Pat always makes us smile and laugh. We are extremely proud of her.
