Please join us in congratulating  Rachel Sullivan, Social and Community Services Case Navigator, who has been selected as the 3rd quarter honoree for the Jamestown Employee Honor Award. Rachel Sullivan was nominated by his peers, supervisors, and citizens, for their outstanding contributions to our workplace.

The quarterly Jamestown Employee Honor Award recognizes employees who:

  • Go above and beyond by providing exceptional service
  • Demonstrate creativity resulting in cost savings or efficiency
  • Play a key role as a volunteer for tribal functions/events
  • Act as an ambassador to the community
  • Demonstrate a high level of initiative.

Here are some excerpts from the nomination:

“The list of Rachel’s contributions to the Tribe is long and diverse.  her workweek overflows into the evening and the weekends where much of the time is considered volunteer work.  Instead of trying to explain what an amazing woman she is, I thought I would provide a few examples.
Power outage in Clallam County: When I returned to work after the power outage I realized some elders were still without power. I approached Rachel about an emergency plan and which elders may be affected. She had already made up a list of elders living along and those with medical needs. She had already contacted many of the citizens over the weekend to check if they were safe and if they needed.
Home fire: an out-of-area citizen had a house fire and I brought it to Rachel’s attention.  By the time I contacted the citizen they knew who Rachel was and were already working on a plan of action with her.
To round this out…. Rachel is seen weekly volunteering with the teem program where she has two daughters.  She is a wealth of knowledge and shares this knowledge with whomever she encounters who is in need.  When I’ve thought of ideas to improve the safety or welfare of our citizens she has already had the thought and is most likely creating a plan of action which shows a high level of initiative.  Rachel is a compassionate, caring, amazing women and to boot…she’s a Tribal Citizen!”
