“Honestly I was shocked, speechless and a bit embarrassed. I love helping, I don’t care about the accolades that go along with it. I like to be under the radar. I want to make a difference, but not be on center stage. But it’s nice to know that I was recognized for the work that I do."
Vanhoy said she likes to stay busy and give back to her community, and that her boss at SERVPRO, Craig Harmon, encourages employees to be community activists.
Said that it’s important that people make an impact in the world around them, and that it doesn’t matter whether the help is big or small.
“Besides the obvious, helping those who need help or helping the community, it gives me a sense of joy and happiness knowing that I’ve made a difference,” Vanhoy said. “In this world, there is so much negativity and so much hate and things, to be able to positively impact even one person, I can’t see why someone wouldn’t want to give back in someway big or small.”
