Congratulations to our July Employee of the Month, Darci Barnes.
Darci is a Certified Nurse Aide at the Callaway Good Life Center. She has worked here for 18 years. She began her career when our facility was the Good Samaritan Center and stayed with us when we transitioned to the Good Life Center. She began her career in Housekeeping and then Laundry and finally became a C N A.
Darci’s interests include whatever her kids are doing! Currently it’s 4-H projects, gardening, cooking and sewing. Darci’s oldest daughter is a Senior at UNK in Kearney, Anna and Ivy are both 7th graders in Arnold. Her parents are Barb and Don Mills.
Her co-workers nominated her and had this to say, “Darci brought a little kids swimming pool in on the weekend. She sat up the pool with water and a fishing game so the residents could “go fishing”. Darci’s girls were also here to find sticks and make fishing poles for the residents. What a fantastic example of going above and beyond to provide entertainment for the residents! Thank you Darci, Anna and Ivy!”
We asked Darci why she loves her job and she explained, “I get to work with some of the greatest people on earth! The residents are so special to me and I learn a lot from them. And recently I am able to take care of my Grandfather. I am grateful for the extra time I get to spend with him.”
We are grateful that you have been here to quietly perform your job and make the lives of all of us better by your dedication and devotion. Thanks for all you do.
