ACCA is so excited and proud to announce that Keith Adams was presented the annual Presidents award at the Spring Long-Term Care Ombudsman (LTCO) Training Conference held this week in Macon. This award is a peer award, presented by a Community Ombudsman to a fellow Community Ombudsman through the Georgia Council of Community Ombudsmen. The award is presented to an ombudsman to acknowledge a positive impact professionally and/or personally on the Georgia Ombudsman Program and/or on the person giving the award. Keith was awarded the President’s Award by Janet Payne, the 2014 winner and LTCO Coordinator from the Southern Crescent area of Georgia.
Keith joined the ACCA Long-Term Care Ombudsman team in December 2013. Before joining this program, he worked as the coordinator for ACCA’s Winder Adult Day Health facility. “Keith has been a member of the ACCA staff for almost 12 years and we are so excited he has been recognized with the prestigious award. He is a dedicated employee and always gives 100% so it is no surprise that he would be recognized at the state level,” stated Nita Norris, ACCA Personnel Director.
