Carolyn Huckaby is congratulated by Barry Ray, president of Legacy Senior Living; Janice Patton, regional vice president; Allen Chambers, executive director of Legacy Village at Park Regency; and Bryan Cook, COO of Legacy Senior Living
Carolyn Huckaby has been named the company-wide annual Extra Mile winner of Legacy Senior Living, which operates a family of senior living communities throughout the Southeast specializing in independent living, assisted living or Alzheimer’s care services.
Ms. Huckaby learned she had won the “Legacy Champion” award shortly after she won the annual Going the Extra Mile award for her dedicated service to the residents of Legacy Village at Park Regency of Moultrie, Ga. Legacy Senior Living executives selected her from a pool of nominees who won annual Going the Extra Mile awards for the Legacy Senior Living facilities they serve.
“On behalf of the Legacy Senior Living company, we are elated to honor and celebrate Ms. Carolyn Huckaby on being chosen as the Legacy Champion. It is compelling and gratifying to observe such a hardworking, selfless team member like Carolyn who makes a difference in the lives of residents and their families,” said Bryan Cook, COO of Legacy Senior Living.
"Ms. Huckaby, who has served the Legacy Village at Park Regency community since 2005, displays exemplary dedication to the residents, their families and other staff members. She is known for her hard work and selfless attitude," officials said.
The Going the Extra Mile program encourages residents, family members and employees to nominate team members who have performed exceptionally well in a specific scenario. The program committee reviews nominations each quarter, selecting a winner who receives a special parking space, a personalized plaque in the lobby and a $100 cash prize. The annual winner receives a $500 prize.
Ms. Huckaby was surprised at work with the announcement that she won both the annual Going the Extra Mile award for Legacy Village at Park Regency, and was chosen as the Legacy Champion for the entire company. Ms. Huckaby was selected to represent the company as Legacy Champion out of the pool of annual Going the Extra Mile winners from each facility.
“One of the greatest pleasures we have in this business is witnessing a team member take care of our residents with the utmost respect and care. Carolyn Huckaby is an example of one who selflessly cares for the greatest generation as they should be cared for. Upon hearing of Ms. Carolyn’s Legacy Champion award, we were impressed with how many family members of current and previous residents reached out in agreement with how deserving Carolyn is of this award,” said Barry Ray, president of Legacy Senior Living.
"It is compelling and gratifying to observe such a hardworking, selfless team member like Carolyn who makes a difference in the lives of residents and their families," officials said.
