Arc Associates


Eveland named Associate of the Month

Meghan Eveland was named the Arc of Steuben’s Associate of the Month for April.

Meghan, of Bath, works as a Direct Support Professional in the agency’s Oaklawn home. She was honored for filling in as the home’s medical assistant.

“As the nurse I rely on my medical assistants tremendously, and we are lucky to have good people here filling those positions,” said the nomination letter, written by Jill Myers. “I personally was extremely grateful to Meghan for stepping up when the house, the agency, and I, needed her to. She has done an exceptional job working under busy, hectic and stressful conditions, and is still able to keep the medical appointments going, medications ordered, and act during unplanned or urgent situations as needed.”

While filling in as the home’s medical assistant, Meghan is also picking up extra shifts to fill in for associates on vacation. She is also taking the training necessary to become a CPR instructor.

Also nominated for April Associate of the Month were Bethany Herrington, job coach, of Hornell; Becky Wheaton, community services assistant, of Corning; and Michele Fraboni, associate director of residential services, of Avoca.
