Redemption Center honors employee

award2At most jobs, an employee simply gets to keep his job for coming to work every day.

At River Street Redemption Center, owner Charlene Martindale wanted to recognize employee Jerry Wideawake a little bit more than that.

On Thursday, Martindale presented Wideawake with an award for his customer service and perfect attendance.

“Every day he’s on time, even early,” she said of Wideawake, who has been working at the redemption center for almost a year.

But Martindale said it’s not only his good attitude at work that earned him recognition, but his dedication to the community. She said he regularly helps out at benefits for people that are sick, for fire departments and for other local organizations.

“He definitely deserves it,” she said.

In addition to the award, Wideawake will enjoy a weekend getaway courtesy of his employer. He said he wasn’t expecting to get any kind of award, and humble said it “feels great.”
