Poland Spring employee Shelly Pittman was recently honored at the annual “Thanks for Giving” luncheon hosted by Nestlé Waters North America to commemorate employee volunteerism. Pittman was one of five recipients recognized at the event, which also honors nonprofits that serve local communities throughout the country, such as the American Red Cross and United Way.
Pittman, an administrative assistant at Poland Spring’s Poland facility, attended the luncheon held in Stamford, Connecticut, where she received the 2016 Volunteer Coordinator of the Year award.
“I was thrilled to hear that Shelly was chosen for this special award,” said Chris McKenna, Poland Plant Manager, Poland Spring. “She is deeply committed to our employees as well as the local community. Whether she’s creating an employee events calendar or coordinating family-friendly functions for staff, she is always going above and beyond in her role and is a valued member of the Poland Spring team.”
“I am happy to coordinate events for our employees and their families because it brings us all closer together,” said Pittman after the event. “This special recognition means a great deal to me, and I share this honor with my co-workers in Poland. They make coming to work every day very meaningful.”
Pittman has worked for Poland Spring for three years. She resides in Minot with her husband and two teenage children.
