Ramsey takes home this year's 'Individual Achievement Award'

POSTED: June 13

 

MURFREESBORO — Making significant contributions towards one's own independence. Working hard and smart at multiple jobs. Volunteering. Being a good team member. Always upbeat.

 

Those are just a few of the qualities that landed James Ramsey, a person supported by Journeys in Community Living, this year's Individual Achievement Award at our 2015 Annual Celebration & Silent Auction at the DoubleTree Hotel on Friday.

 

Ramsey was one of five people awarded at this year's event, aimed at both honoring those who have contributed to our organization's success over the past year and years past, as well as raising funds the organization can use to support individuals like Ramsey.

 

Executive Director Betty McNeely said Ramsey was selected by an internal panel at Journeys to receive this year's award due to strides he has made in recent years towards becoming independent.

 

"Anyone who has ever had the opportunity to meet James knows right away that this is a man with a kind heart, the type of person who would do anything to help someone else," McNeely said. "In a world where this personality type seems to be on the decline, James is a refreshing breath of air."

 

Ramsey is participating in a full range of services at Journeys, including both working in the production center at our Haley Road facility and working at a regular job in the community.

 

Others recognized at the Annual Celebration included:

 

— Rachel Burch, Staff Achievement Award

 

— Faye Holmes, Staff Achievement Award

 

— Piete Ferguson (RN-BC), Healthcare Leadership Award

 

— Julie Ferrara (DIDD), Robert Rose Community Service Award
