Sherri Pizzi, admissions director at Bristol Glen, was chosen for the United Methodist Homes Stars, UMH Hospitality Award, at Celebrating the Power of Community, a recent gathering of associates from all 10 United Methodist Homes of New Jersey communities.
In particular, the UMH Hospitality Award recognizes Pizzi, a resident of Newton, for demonstrating the spirit of unconditional love, care; taking responsibility and following up diligently to enact a solution; and going above and beyond to make everyone feel welcomed. Among the many nomination comments submitted were, “Sherri often comes back on her own time to make sure new residents are settled in, even if it is outside of her traditional hours.”
An interdisciplinary Awards Committee sorted through nominations and determined the winners. These included four associate awards, the Emerging Leadership Award, John Wesley Ministry Award, United Methodist Homes Hospitality Award, Star Award; and two community awards: Community Safety and Celebrating the Power of Community. All associates were able to submit one choice for each of the six awards along with their reasons.
