Four Belk associates, including one at the Gainesville store, have been named winners of the 2016 Belk Award of Excellence, the company’s highest honor given to associates for community service and job performance. The winners were honored at a luncheon hosted by Belk in Charlotte last Tuesday.
Each received a $500 cash prize, along with an additional $1,000 to present to the charity of his or her choice.
The 2016 Award of Excellence winners, who were selected from a group of more than 100 associates nominated across the company, are:
• Jasyn Fowler, Belk of Bel Air Mall, Mobile, Alabama
• Amy McGhee, Belk of West Town Mall, Knoxville, Tennessee
• Vanessa Poinsette, Belk Citadel, Charleston, South Carolina
• Dontrice Stephens, Belk of Gainesville, Gainesville
The annual awards program recognizes associates who best represent the company’s value “to be involved in our communities” and highlights the importance of giving back to communities across the South that make Belk’s growth and success possible. The winners were chosen based on their contributions to organizations and causes that fall within Belk’s community focus areas: education, breast cancer awareness and research and community strengthening. According to a news release, the winners also demonstrated excellence in their support of Belk-sponsored community service projects, fundraising events and philanthropic activities, as well as exceptional job performance.
