Mr. Merrell exemplifies KSI mission and teaches others about ABILITIES every day. Having secured a job in food service at Harrington Raceway & Casino, he’s shown that he is a hard worker and enjoys learning from his fellow coworkers and management team. According to Ann Haggerty, KSI Employment Manager, “James wants to work and make money so that he can provide a good life for his wife and daughter. His daughter inspires him to do his best.” His dream is to open his own food business one day so that he can leave a legacy for his daughter.
As Employee of the Quarter, Mr. Merrell’s name has been added to a permanent plaque at KSI and he received a $50 Visa Gift Card from Dover Federal Credit Union. He also received a gift certificate donated by G & R Campground in Houston entitling him to spend a weekend in one of their cottages, and a one year aquatics membership from the Greater Milford Boys & Girls Club.
