This year’s St. Jeanne Jugan Award recipient was announced today by Mother Cecilia to be Julie Dean!
Julie has been employed at the Sacred Heart Home for 27 years starting first as a nurses aid, then working as a physical therapy aid, and then as our staff scheduler. Julie has been a devoted employee of the Little Sisters and has cared for many of our Residents over her career. Upon receiving the award, Julie said “it completely surprised me!” An awards ceremony will be held in the near future to recognize Julie for all she has done and continues to do for the elderly she serves.
This award is given annually to recognize an employee who exemplifies the Spirit of St. Jeanne Jugan in their selfless service to the elderly. Recipients are nominated by their peers and selected by the Sisters.
