Martin receives state excellence award
Sharon Martin, Heritage Hospice Community and Provider Liaison, received the Award of Excellence from the Kentucky Association of Hospice and Palliative Care. Heritage Hospice Executive Director Janelle Wheeler surprised Martin, a 10-year employee, with the honor at the August conference of the state association. In addition to her many outreach activities, she started an annual Veterans Appreciation Day nine years ago. This event welcomed 900 veterans and 300 of their guests in 2015 for a lunch and many door prizes. Wheeler nominated Martin for the state award in recognition of her hard work on this event and her many other activities. "She is an indy who many times over I have said, 'I wish that we could do it or I would like to do or I wonder if we could do and that's all I would have to say. She would take the idea whatever it would be and run with it and not just do it but do it in a way that would amaze me beyond words."
