Kassi Divelbiss, 2014 Shining Star of Year at Pella Regional

Kassi DivelbissPELLA, Iowa— Kassi Divelbiss, Nutrition Services, was recently selected by co-workers as the 2014 Shining Star of the Year at Pella Regional Health Center.

“I’m always amazed at how well Kassi knows her customer’s preferences and favorites,” said Scott Kinney, Director of Nutrition Services at Pella Regional Health Center. “She works in a busy atmosphere and getting people through the line quickly and happily is important. I know things will flow smoothly for all when Kassi is working.”

Divelbiss, resident of Pella, was Shining Star of the Month in December. Shining Star is a reward and recognition program at Pella Regional designed to acknowledge an employee each month that demonstrates outstanding standards of behavior and inspires others to do their best. At the end of the year one of the Shining Star of the Month recipients is then chosen by Pella Regional employees as Shining Star of the Year.

An excerpt from her nomination form said:
“Each morning I venture down to the cafeteria to get some ice water and oftentimes some breakfast and it is always a treat to be greeted by Kassi. She always has a smile and usually a comedic comment. She does her job very well and is a great saleswoman; she is always offering me a dessert. It truly makes my day to have a brief interaction with her. It may seem small, but you never know how your actions will affect someone else. Kassi is a great example of what we strive for here at Pella Regional.”

Divelbiss receives an Employee of the Year plaque and a $250 gift.
