This award is presented to an Old North Foundation educator who exemplifies the highest standards of our education team, based on several factors including interactions with our visitors, ability to handle daily duties AND unexpected situations, teamwork, reliability and dedication, and presentation skills.
Faye is one of our senior educators who returned for a second season this year. Over the past few months, she has grown tremendously in her position, stepping up into a leadership role and setting the example for our newer educators. Faye always has a handle on what’s going on in the church, and she’s reliable and dedicated. Her sincerity shines through in her tours and interactions with the public. Additionally, her delightful demeanor makes everyone feel at ease and welcome on our campus.
“If the educators on the floor are a team, then Faye would be our captain. She works hard to make sure that everyone is happy and on the same page. She’s also very reliable. When Faye is on schedule with me, I know the day is going to run smoothly and there will be a good atmosphere! She is also great with visitors, and I’ve been approached by people after her talks and tours who have said that she does a fantastic job!”
