Please join The Bridge City Chamber of Commerce in congratulating Janna Achord, CEO of Wellspring Credit Union, on receiving the Employee of the Month Award for July 2015. Janna was presented her award, sponsored by Sabine River Ford, by chamber ambassador Lee Reeves at the July Networking Coffee hosted by Sabine River Ford. Janna received gifts from the following businesses: Little Caesars Bridge City, Total Impressions Salon, Dupuis Tire, The Record Newspaper, Tiger Rock Martial Arts, Michele Michelle Salon & Spa, Dairy Queen, Sabine Federal Credit Union, Mary Kelone, LMT NCBTMT, The Classy Peacock and Complete Staffing.
Janna oversees three branches in Orange County and one in Newton with twenty-five employees altogether. Some of the staff of the credit union had these things to say about Janna:
- “Janna is one of the hardest working people I know. She puts the credit union members and employees above everything else.”
- “Janna deserves to be employee of the month because she is a prime example of servant leadership. She would never ask any of her employees to do something she herself is not willing to do, and she is never too proud to get her hands dirty and do the jobs no one wants to do. She has the ability to connect with all and the compassion to help employees on a personal level. This is why she has the respect and veneration of all of us.”
- “Janna never asks a staff member to do anything she wouldn’t do. If a member has needs Janna is never too busy or above helping the member.”
Thank you Janna for being an outstanding leader in our community and a fine example of a CEO.
