Give the Gift of Life!

     As we celebrate Valentine’s Day, did you know that February 14th is also National Donor Day?  It’s more than a coincidence that a day set aside for matters of the heart has a connection to organ donation.  There are well over 2,000 heart transplants a year with over 3,500 people on a wait list.  If you add in all the people on the wait list for kidney, liver and other transplants, it’s way more than 100,000 people waiting for our help right now.  How can you help?  Commit to being an organ donor.

     To get on the Arkansas registry, you can sign up on-line at ARORA (Arkansas Regional Organ Recovery Agency) or go directly to www.donatelifearkansas.org.  Or, if you drive, the next time you’re at the Revenue office to renew your driver’s license, say yes to organ donation and it will be noted on your driver’s license.   And guess what?  You’re never too old to donate.  The oldest person to date who donated was 94 years old!

     It is important to understand that the Donor Registry list is considered to be legally binding.  If you are a registered donor, ARORA (Arkansas Regional Organ Recovery Agency) is NOT required to ask your living next of kin to give final consent for  donation, so it is very important that you share your decision with family members.  Commit to being an organ donor - you alone can save up to 8 lives through organ donation and that doesn’t even include tissue donation.  There’s a whole lot of people out there counting on us!

     Please act now and give hope, and the gift of life to someone in need of an organ or tissue transplant.  This is your chance to do something really great!

Employee of the Month is Amy Williams

     Congratulations goes out to Amy Williams for winning the Employee of the Month for February.  Amy is proof that you don’t have to be with a company for a long time to be recognized for doing a great job. 

     According to her Area Manager, Ramona Meeker, “when Amy started in the Blackhive account, she started making a difference immediately and she continues to do an excellent job of taking care of the customers needs”.  Ramona goes on to say, “Amy is always on time and very on task”.

     Amy works an evening shift because she has small children at home during the day. We sure are glad she chose us for her evenings away from home.  Thank you Amy for all your hard work!

              

Employee of the Month is Greg Channell

     Congratulations goes out to Greg Channell for being named the Employee of the Month for January!  Greg works as a full-time Floor Tech for DOW based out of our Jonesboro branch and he’s been with us since May of 2013.

     Kristin West, Jonesboro Area Manager says all good things about Greg.  “Greg is my go to guy who I can always count on to get the job done, big or small.  I don’t know what I would have done without him on this big start up this past month”.  She goes on to say, “his work ethic is amazing and he won’t quit till he gets the job done.  He’s my kind of guy”.

     Way to go, Greg.  You are most deserving!

Health Hero goes to Kauwyana Yancy

     Meet Kauwyana Yancy.  She works for DOW at the DaVita Dialysis Clinic in Sherwood.  She has been with us since May of 2017 and has been a great hire since then.  According to her Area Supervisor, Kendrick Cross, “Kauwyana is an excellent worker and very dependable.  I can count on her to always do her very best”.  

     Congratulations, Kauwyana! 

In Memory.....................

     As long time co-workers, it is with great sadness that we say goodbye to William “Jared” Moore.  Jared worked for DOW as a full-time Floor Tech on the Medical Side from December 1, 2006 until May 5, 2017.  Jared was a fun guy to work with who would do whatever was asked of him whether he wanted to or not, LOL.  You could always count on Jared. 

     He left us in May of 2017 due to his ongoing battle with cancer.  He fought long and hard, but unfortunately he passed from this earth on November 16, 2018 at  36 years old.   Jared left quite an impression on everyone at DOW who was lucky enough to know him and work with him.  He was a really good guy.

     Our deepest sympathy goes out to his family as we express our sincere condolences.  Rest in Peace, Jared.
