Community Services Shining Star Award
The Community Services Department would like to recognize Jonathan Macall, Recreation Aide, as the 3rd Quarter 2019 Shining Star Award Winner.
Jonathan has been with the Community Services Department since May 2014. Since then Jonathan has proven himself to be a valuable asset and incredible team player for the City of Glendora.
Jonathan is the definition of a team player. He will pick up extra shifts without complaint or hesitation, help out other facilities and divisions within the Community Services Department, stop by on his free time to see how the everyone is doing, and always treats the La Fetra Center participants with respect. There have been multiple occasions in which Jonathan was stopping by the La Fetra Center to say hello when an accident or incident has occurred and he never hesitates to jump in and help. On one particular instance a participant became dizzy, fell and it his head, and needed immediate medical attention while Jonathan was dropping by for a moment. Jonathan rose to the occasion and started to help the participant while other staff members grabbed the emergency medical supply bag to perform first aid. He does not think selfishly but acts out of the kindness of his heart and it shows daily in everything he does at the La Fetra Center.
Jonathan commits his time and his ideas to the La Fetra Center to improve our practices, programs, and staff. During our monthly staff meetings he contributes his thoughts and ideas in a productive matter that shows he cares about our center and its participants. Jonathan was vital in the brainstorming of new events for La Fetra including the June 2018 Picnic which had over 180 guests, and the upcoming Fabulous 50’s event. Jonathan’s communication skills are also a great asset to the Department as he is always following up on tasks, projects, rentals, or any other duty that he has. He makes sure to let his Supervisors know of any changes, issues, or positive notations and when there is a problem he brings a solution! He takes on special events projects and tasks willingly and with a great attitude. He commits to the City of Glendora, it’s residents, and he commits to his coworkers.
Jonathan has been instrumental team member in the Community Services Department for many years and is vital to the La Fetra Center's continual success. For these reasons we would like to recognize Jonathan Macall as the Departments 3rd Quarter Shining Star.
