PEMBROKE — HealthKeeperz, a Pembroke-based heath services provider, recently honored Hortensia Ray Alston-Hayes for her care and service.
Alston-Hayes, a CAP social worker in the Elizabeth City office, was named the recipient of the Barnabas Award in the fourth quarter of 2017 and the 2018 Super Barnabas Award during a recent banquet. To qualify for the award, a recipient must show acts of caring, selflessness, humbleness and encouragement.
“She always puts others’ needs before hers, even if it means staying late or working through her own lunch just to listen and advise others,” a co-worker said.
The Barnabas Awards began a couple of years ago and was designed by a leadership team to have employees select the people who, on a quarterly and annual basis, inspire them to be their best by living the values of the “Barnabas culture.”
