[December 04, 2008]  Community Action announced their employee of the year at their staff meeting on Oct. 31. Brandy Long of Lincoln, who had been named the employee of the quarter for July through September, was awarded the honor for the work she does as a home care aide for the Senior Home Care Services program that operates in Logan County. She was chosen because she is a responsible advocate for frail seniors and always goes above and beyond to help.

HardwareA panel outside the agency made the selection.

"Brandy exemplifies the promise of Community Action," said Mel Urbanowicz, senior programs assistant. "She cares about her customers and provides them with the highest level of service that helps improve the quality of their lives. She is knowledgeable of the programs available throughout our agency and makes sure that they are signed up for any services they need.

"Brandy is a very responsible person, and I know she meets all challenges head-on and develops a plan. She was very instrumental, with the assistance of an elder abuse investigator and in securing a guardian for one of our seniors."

Long was presented with a plaque and a $250 gift card by Angela Stoltzenburg, executive director, and Steve Lobb, governing board president.
