Hospital and school system wage friendly competition for a serious reason
Leitchfield , Ky. – The Grayson County schools and Twin Lake Regional Medical Center have created the “United Way Challenge” as an extra incentive for their employees to support United Way of Central Kentucky. A traveling trophy will go to the winner of the friendly competition between the two large employers.
“United Way is such an asset to our community,” according to Barry Anderson, school superintendent. “We are happy to enter this competition with the hospital.” Anderson notes the schools currently have physical possession of the trophy to show to their employees and that they have no intention of giving it back to the hospital.
“We’ll see about that,” responded Wayne Meriwether, CEO at Twin Lakes. “Our employees are superstars when it comes to supporting the community. I’m confident they will rise to the challenge.”
The traveling trophy was created by John Allen at T-Shirt Express. Each year’s winner will be engraved on the trophy.
The real winner of the competition, of course, will be the many Grayson County people served through programs and agencies supported by United Way. Both the schools and the hospital hope other businesses will be motivated to create competitions to show their support to United Way within their organizations or with each other.
