WEST LIBERTY – Nita Wilkinson of Bellefontaine was among those who received an award during the 2016 LeadingAge Ohio Annual Conference in Columbus.
Wilkinson, Director of Advancement at Green Hills Community in West Liberty, was presented the President’s Commendation for her work involving residents to create the “2016 Residents Salute to The Movies,” a calendar featuring residents posing in renditions of famous movie posters.
Posters include “Breakfast at Tiffany’s,” “The Good, The Bad and The Ugly,” “The Three Stooges” and “The Sound of Music.”
The calendar is only available as a thank-you gift to donors who give $100 or more during a year.
Wilkinson has worked in the field of aging services for 17 years, two years at Green Hills Community.
A 2017 calendar featuring famous TV shows is in the works.
Past LeadingAge Ohio award winners associated with Green Hills are Sharon Showalter, retired Director of Nurse Aide Training, who received the Indirect Care Giver Award, and the West Liberty-Salem Second Grade Readers program, which received the Group Volunteer Service Award.
LeadingAge Ohio is a member-driven nonprofit organization that represents about 500 not-for-profit long-term care organizations serving the aging population.
