Sieda Community Action acknowledged ten staff members with awards denoting years of service. Sieda would like to mention the staff members employed at Sieda for 25 years, 10 years, and 5 years. We are thankful for their many years of hard work and service to our counties.

Brian stated, “It is a recognition of team members’ commitment and dedication to the work we do. Most anyone can spend a year or two in a job they don’t love. Reaching the milestones these folks have shows how much they care about our organization, our team, and most importantly, the individuals and families we serve. Sieda would not be the best nonprofit in the world without you.”

Sieda values the work of all employees and truly appreciates the contributions our staff make to the organization and the communities we serve. They have committed their time and energy to ensure that Sieda Community Action truly makes a difference in the lives of our clients

Thank you for your service.
