Nominations were accepted for an outstanding employee who goes above and beyond their job description.

Winner - Val Langevin of Sylvan Lake Value Drug Mart presented the Employee of the Year Award to Leah McIntyre of Sylvan Agencies Insurance during last Friday night’s 35th annual Mermaid Ball organized by Sylvan Lake Chamber of Commerce.

Nominations were accepted for an outstanding employee who goes above and beyond their job description.

Leah McIntyre of Sylvan Agencies insurance was named Employee of the Year. She was “nominated as a result of her invaluable service and work ethic. She has taken on a managerial position as well as her broker duties and excels in all areas. An excellent employee, well respected by her peers, and immensely appreciated by her employers.”

Other nominees were:

Adina Nasholm, Sobey’s – Friendly, helpful and happy to be at work. She is a positive person and transfers her positive energy to others around her.

Anita Adrain, Canadian Tire – A long time resident of Sylvan Lake and previous small business owner herself. Currently operating the Canadian Tire Garden Centre and the ‘go to’ person for planting advice. Always friendly, helpful and offering customer service as if this were her own business.

Nellie Melenka, Town of Sylvan Lake – This lady is known by her face and work ethic by many people who do not know her name. Whether she is on the clock or not, she is a fabulous ambassador for our town. If she sees garbage to be picked up, she does it; someone looking lost or confused, she offers help; tourists with questions, she directs them to the right place. A work ethic of days gone by, this lady still has it.

The award was sponsored by Sylvan Lake Value Drug Mart.
