Holiday Retirement today announced that KC Trammel, a maintenance technician at Holiday’s Kamlu Retirement Inn in Vancouver, Wash. was named a finalist in the 2016 Argentum Hero Awards. Argentum is the national association for operators of senior living communities.
This award highlights outstanding service to residents within senior living communities across the United States, and recognizes only 15 individuals out of the hundreds of thousands of people serving residents of senior living communities. Five will be elected by the public in online voting to win the Hero Awards.
2016 marks the third consecutive year a Holiday Retirement associate has achieved finalist status in the Hero Award competition. In 2014 and 2015, Holiday associates went on to win the award.
“We are thrilled that KC Trammel has been recognized as a finalist for the 2016 Argentum Hero Award,” said Lilly Donohue, Holiday Retirement CEO. “This award celebrates all of us and our genuine devotion to senior living. Seeing Holiday colleagues among the finalists three years in a row is a wonderful honor.”
As a maintenance technician, Trammel directly serves the small project needs of residents, and performs community-wide maintenance. In his role, he listens to residents’ concerns about safety and comfort—and offers creative ways to help them. Kamlu Retirement Inn’s community manager, Shannon Taylor, nominated Trammel for his outstanding sense of compassion and dedication to quality of life for residents. Taylor said Kamlu residents regularly approach her to share stories about the great work Trammel completed.
“KC is a wonderful role model to his fellow associates on a daily basis—I often hear him proactively asking residents whether he can help them,” said Taylor. “He is compassionate and puts 150% into his work, making sure it is always high quality.”
