Sr. Lucy Kazigu and Ms. Diamond Beard have been named winners of the Maggie Cary Award for the first quarter of 2024.

Sr. Lucy, a personal care worker in the adult wings of St. Ann Center’s Stein Campus, was chosen by her coworkers because, according to her colleagues, she “is the true definition of what St. Ann Center stands for. She makes the clients feel special and takes her time to give all of the clients her attention to make them feel happy and comfortable. She finds games and activities to fit the needs of the clients. Sr. Lucy goes above and beyond daily, and is helpful to the families, as well.”

Her coworkers selected Ms. Diamond Beard, a teacher in the childcare wing of St. Ann Center’s Bucyrus campus, because she “is a peacemaker and provides a more enjoyable work environment for everyone. A generous creative, she plans gatherings and coordinates the children’s performances for special occasions. Diamond helps create a caring community with her peaceful and giving self.”
