Staff Appreciation at Latham

There is no better way to recognize our dedicated staff than by using their own words of appreciation. In just 3 weeks, the internal “Shout-outs” within our Children’s Program staff created many pages of accolades. Below is just a sampling of randomly chosen shout-outs.   Our staff members’ words remind us of the values at the heart of our work culture. (Pictured: Several new members of our Latham team at the October new-hire Orientation Training.)
