Employee of the Month
Darla Nebel, Recreation Department Activity Aide for the Missouri Veterans Home - St. James, was selected as the March 2018 Missouri Veterans Commission Employee of the Month.
Darla was nominated by her peers and selected because while employed at the Missouri Veterans Home - St. James, she has worked in three different departments and excelled in all three, using what she learned to better serve the Veterans in each new position.
Darla creates moments of joy daily and the Veterans love her personality and infectious energy. She has been able to get the most reluctant Veteran to participate by tailoring activities to the Veteran’s preferences. She also volunteers in other departments when they are short staffed and on her days off without being asked. This dedication has been a part of Darla's service since she started at MVC-St. James nine years ago and it has never wavered.
While employed with the Missouri Veterans Commission Darla has day after day exemplified true dedication to the Commission's Mission Statement of honoring and serving our Veterans. She is a true role model for all Commission staff and her dedication for those we serve reflects well on the Commission as a whole and on herself in particular.
Darla will be honored March 13, 2018 at a 10 a.m. ceremony at the Missouri Veterans Home – St. James in St. James, Missouri.
