The humanitarian category of Heart and Soul recognizes employees for acts of kindness and charity that promote the well-being or improves the lives of others in our community. It also includes actions of bravery, courage and selflessness.
Michael Rader is a program assistant in graduate medical education. He was recognized for his selflessness during the recent holidays.
Rader volunteered his time during the holiday season to help people in the community who were physically unable to decorate their homes by helping them with their Christmas trees. One person said once Rader finished, they sat until midnight admiring their Christmas tree. Because of Rader's selflessness, people better enjoyed the beauty of the season.
The person who nominated Rader said this is just one example of the many ways he is an asset to the community.
