The ILRC’s Employee of the Quarter Award recognizes the accomplishments of employees that perform exemplary service. Nominees are selected each quarter by employee vote and meeting the qualifications listed. For this quarter, the ILRC has chosen Toccara James for her exemplary service.
From the ILRC team:
She is the best, obviously! D.F.
She is professional and picks up the slack for others. A.L.
I would like to vote for Tocarra. She has a wealth of knowledge regarding not only WIPA but social services programs out in the community to further assist our consumers. She is always a team player and willing to help out other coordinators and/or their consumers. She works hard and laughs often...and loud and it always makes me smile to hear her. A. M.
