On September 15th, Opportunities for Positive Growth Inc. celebrated the kindness and dedication illustrated by every member of the OPG family, at Indiana’s historic Conner Prairie. With staff members lining the room, a string of awards and rapturous cheers capped off our Day of Greatness.
Selecting an OPG staff member deserving of an award is an easy task indeed. Narrowing that list down however, is a different story. With numerous staff members nominated for three categories of awards, the Day of Greatness finale kicked off by honoring those individuals who distinguished themselves through their community involvement.
From five nominations, three winners were awarded a trophy for the hard work and resolute passion applied throughout their community. Below, you’ll find each winner and a nominator’s quote exemplifying the difference they’ve made in countless lives across their respective careers.
Alyssia Lopez, Direct Support Professional
“She has reinvigorated an art group that meets within the local community. The weekly group has immense potential for ongoing partnerships in the local community. She has expanded opportunities within the community for all the people she supports.”
Sara Jo Fliflet, Behavior Support Specialist
“Every day has a purpose of connection. Whether it’s taking someone to a concert, driving people to a bonfire, helping people find a job, volunteering, going out to eat, seeing a movie, developing friendships, having a picnic, etc.”
Nicole Gilberti-Martin, Music Therapist
“She has helped to increase access to OPG music therapy to two new facilities! She works hard to build relationships with people in these facilities and show them the benefits of bringing our services to their space. This has helped OPG bring a desired service to people in their own communities.”
Congratulations once again to every deserved winner and nominee alike!
