Catholic Charities recently honored Roneta Stubbs, of Calumet City, with their Employee Recognition Award for her excellent service as the office manager of Housing Services, according to a news release. The award is given to just three of the agency’s 2,000-plus employees per quarter, and includes a bonus and paid day off.
A Catholic Charities employee for more than 15 years, Stubbs is considered an excellent employee who puts her whole heart into serving the agency's clients, the release states. She is known to approach her job as if the resident affected was her very own grandmother.
Her title is office manager, but Stubbs is credited with going above and beyond that role. To her team, she is a constant support for whatever they may need to do their jobs effectively: cell phone maintenance, mileage reimbursements, time sheets, etc. She willingly steps in to help with almost anything, including helping clear sewer drains, delivering equipment or moving furniture.
Stubbs said the greatest reward is that she doesn't feel like she has to work because she does what she loves and loves what she does.
