This morning our Executive Director L. C. (Buster) Evans, CFO Stephen Boyers, and HR Generalist Surbrena Johnson, and had the opportunity to accept the State Charitable Contribution Program (SCCP) Governor’s Award for the category of Largest Increase in Contributions by Percentage. Being recognized for giving back to those in need was a very special moment for TRS.
We raised over $3,000 for various charities through charitable giving events such as “Wear Jeans to Work” where employees donated money for the opportunity to wear jeans for a week. We not only raised money, but had fun doing so.
We could not have done it without the leadership of our SCCP team, which included Surbrena Johnson, Genethia Beasley, Kenya Thomas, Michell Harris, and Renee Williams. Their dedication, teamwork and ideas helped increase the participation level throughout TRS and look forward to increasing the level of giving back next year. As the great Martin Luther King Jr. stated, “Every man must decide whether he will walk in the light of creative altruism or in the darkness of destructive selfishness.”
