On January 24th, SCI Mercer held its annual Mentor Training coordinated by the Mentor Committee. In attendance were 25 mentors, nine of whom are committee members that include Lt. Vernice Phillips, Unit Manager Greg Giddens, Counselor Banita Howell, CO1 Jeff Fink, CO1 Lawanda Green, CO1 Tiffany Grundy, Training Coordinator Melissa Filer, Mailroom Supervisor Charlene Norris, and Counselor Lisa Foust.
The training day began with icebreaker games and creating a mentoring mural. The mural was a spoof of Paw Patrol called Mentoring "Patrol" - Ready for Action because the members are eager and ready to mentor co-workers to be successful in the Department. Pictured with the completed mural are Lt. Vernice Phillips and Counselor Lisa Foust.
The training included completion of applications and discussing ways to improve the program. Deputy William Woods spoke to the group about the importance of the program and Greg Giddens reviewed the Mentoring policy with the group. The day was rounded out with listening to Rocco Cozza, a motivational speaker and author of the book, "The A.L.P.H.A. Way: 5 Keys to Unlocking Your Greatness and Living Your Best Life."
