April 06, 2015
Habitat America’s Community Manager, Melinda DeJesus, was recently recognized for her service to the residents of The Greens at Hammonds Lane at The Rotary Club of Glen Burnie’s 2015 “Service Above Self” Community Dinner.
One of 34 honorees recognized at the dinner, Melinda was presented an award for her passion for helping her residents live actively by bringing in important outside resources for better health as well as lively entertainment for the residents. She is the first employee of Habitat America to accept this honor.
The “Service Above Self” award recognizes individuals in Anne Arundel County who demonstrate exceptional commitment to serving the community through club service, vocational service, community service, international service and new generations service.
“It is an honor working for such a great company and being part of a wonderful team, let alone winning an award for doing what I love,” said Melinda.
Mr. Ho Ung Kim, resident of The Greens at Hammonds Lane, was also recognized by The Rotary Club of Glen Burnie for his volunteer work at the Brooklyn Park Senior Center.
The mission of Rotary International is to provide service to others, promote integrity, and advance world understanding, good-will and peace through its fellowship of business, professional and community leaders.
The 2015 “Service Above Self” Community Dinner was sponsored by Development Facilitators, Inc. and FMB Laundry, Inc. The host sponsor was BB&T and table sponsors included Senator Ed DeGrange, BWI-Marshall Airport and Baltimore Washington Medical Center, among many others.
