Felton Named Employee of the Month
Jamaika Felton of Columbus was recently chosen by Ellisville State School as the Direct Support Professional Employee of the Month for September, 2016. An employee at James W. Hunt Community Home in Columbus since February, Felton represented the ESS Community Programs Department.
“It is not often that an employee who has worked seven months is even nominated for DSP of the month, much less chosen,” said Community Homes Director Enrika Clay. “Ms. Felton has a great rapport with the people she serves. She is dedicated, loyal and willing to step up when there is a need.”
Felton, who says she enjoys her job, said she likes the conversations she has with the people she serves and that through those conversations she learns something new about them each day. “I enjoy the activities I participate in with those I serve, especially board games and Bingo,” said Felton. “I also love the warm welcome I receive when I come through the front door.”
