[November 20, 2009]  Community Action announced their Employee of the Year at their Oct. 30 meeting. Cathy McIntosh of Lincoln, who had been named the Employee of the Quarter for July through September, was awarded the annual honor for the work she does as a family-community partnership specialist for the Head Start program that operates in six central Illinois counties.

She was chosen because she is a compassionate and persistent advocate for Head Start children and their families, going above and beyond to help. A panel outside the agency made the selection.

"Cathy exemplifies the promise of Community Action. She cares about her families 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," said Marcia Hieronymus, education services manager for Head Start.

"Cathy works to make sure the children, families and her co-workers of Head Start are well cared for," said Beth Fleshman, Head Start director. "She is truly a team player. Cathy will do whatever is asked and does it with a pleasant manner."

McIntosh was presented with a plaque and a $250 gift card by Steve Lobb, governing board president, and Fleshman, deputy director.
