Shriners Hospitals for Children — Spokane announces employee and volunteer of the year!

Each quarter an employee and volunteer are selected by the Board of Governors to win Employee and Volunteer of the Quarter. At the end of the year, staff vote from the pool of quarterly winners to select the Employee and Volunteer of the Year. Winners are chosen because they demonstrate going above and beyond their normal job duties while carrying out the hospital's core values of excellence, innovation, commitment, integrity, teamwork and stewardship.

We are pleased to recognize the 2019 Employee of the Year, Michelle Wacker, and 2019 Volunteer of the Year, Terry Massender.

Michelle and Terry each work tirelessly to ensure the mission of Shriners Hospitals is carried out each and every day, and are known for their cheerful attitude inside and outside the hospital. They are both exceptional members of the Spokane Shriners Hospital family.

Congratulations to our 2019 winners!
