The Arc of Steuben Names Trina Powell as Associate of the Month for August

BATH | Trina Powell, Residence Manager, was named Associate of the Month for August. Powell was nominated by Melissa Garner, Associate Director of Community Supports, for the positive impact she has had on the West Street home.

Powell has led her team to be more positive, in turn, changing the culture of the house.  Powell has been very active in the idea of positive praise, known as the I CARE initiative, ensuring that all West Street associates are trained in the philosophy. Garner said that Powell “goes above and beyond to help and is always looking for the positives in people”.

In the nomination, Garner mentioned a recent visit to the West Street home, where she heard about all the fun activities they have been doing, such as, water balloon fights, yard games, and grilling out. “Everyone was so positive and talked highly of each other” said Garner.

“Trina has successfully led her team to be more positive, which has improved the morale of the entire home” said Garner.

Congratulations Trina on being selected as associate of the month and thank you for all that you do!
