2020 Annual Client Awards Ceremony

Published October 8, 2020

On October 1, 2020, Merrick, Inc., held our annual client awards ceremony. Though it looked significantly different this year, the event continued to be a special opportunity to recognize the contributions and achievements of clients supported by Merrick. We recorded this special occasion and uploaded it to YouTube for all the proud parents, family members, case managers, and caregivers who were unable to attend the event in-person. Please join us in congratulating these amazing individuals for their hard work and dedication.

During the ceremony, we also took a moment to recognize and remember Bobby Petersen and Leslie Polister. Both would have been celebrating their 35th year with Merrick and have been dearly missed since their passing. Stories from Merrick staff were shared in loving memory of Bobby and Leslie who touched our hearts for so many years. You can view the tributes to Bobby and Leslie by clicking here.

In this unusual year, some families observed their loved ones getting awards via FaceTime or Zoom. Other clients who are participating in remote services are receiving their awards on their doorsteps with social distancing. We have heard from one family that is planning to show the video at their own celebration. We are happy that these client successes are still being recognized and celebrated!
