The Best of the Best

We are very excited to announce that Wakonda Grounds Foreman, Beto Ramirez, was given the award of 'Employee of the Year 2013.'  Beto is a highly valued member of the Wakonda Family.  He is crucial to the daily operations of the Grounds Maintenance Department.  He assists with the direction of seasonal maintenance staff through his ability to translate daily tasks and patiently train new employees.

Beto fully embodies Wakonda's 'Nine Guiding Principals' for all employees.  He treats others with respect and greets everyone with a friendly smile.  Beto is a diligent worker and can often be found assisting employees from other departments.

The Employee of the Year is selected from a pool of twelve other staff who were awarded with 'Employee of the Cycle' from various departments and periods throughout the year.  Beto is truly the best of the best.

The award comes with additional time off work and a monetary stipend which is intended to afford Wakonda's best employee the opportunity to enjoy a bit of the relaxation and hospitality that all employees strive to provide our membership.  Beto is planning to take his family home to Guanajuato, Mexico for Christmas, which he has not been able to do for twelve years.

Congratulations Beto!  We are proud of you!
