The Epworth Perspective
Epworth celebrates Black History Month!
Happy February! Make sure to follow us on social media to see all of our posts of colleague stories, hidden figures, and contributions of African Americans as we celebrate Black History Month.
As always, thank you for being a part of our community.
Springing Forward? Pay It Forward!
Join us virtually from March 14th to March 20th to celebrate springing our clocks forward, getting to enjoy more daylight, and paying it forward to Epworth youth and families! Be on the lookout for more information on how you can take your everyday experiences and pay them forward to St. Louis communities in need. Of course, there will be prizes, too!
Epworth recognizes Patriona Spates!
Patriona Spates has been recognized for colleague appreciation, as she is always willing to assist with a smile on her face! Patriona is a service coordinator for the Street Outreach Program and is approaching a four-year anniversary. For as long as she can remember, Patriona wanted to work with youth, as they “can and want to change – they just need guidance and the appropriate tools to do so.” Patriona is especially thankful to her supervisor, Ms. Mary, as she recalls repeatedly asking her for both professional and personal advice. Thank you, Patriona, for your dedication to Epworth; you have touched many lives.
