(March 8, 2017, Marystown, NL) – South Coast Insurance today surprised its employees by announcing two winners of its annual Employee Dream Program. Shantel Marshall and John Mallay will both see their dreams come true in 2017.
“I’m very excited to announce that because of the modest nature of the two dreams with the most votes, South Coast Insurance is able to award two dreams for 2017,” said President Kelly Hickman.
South Coast Insurance will send Shantel Marshall to Alberta to meet her older sister, whom she didn’t learn about until she was 16 and has wanted to meet ever since. Shantel is the Receptionist at South Coast Insurance and, having joined the company last February, just met the one-year requirement to qualify for the Dream Program.
John Mallay will get to celebrate his 40th wedding anniversary by renting a motor home and traveling across NL this summer. John has been the Accountant at South Coast Insurance for more than 10 years.
Through the Program, launched in 2016, South Coast Insurance contributes up to $10,000 to make an employee’s dream come true. Employees submit their 50-word Dream cards anonymously and a panel of three independent judges votes on the winner.
South Coast Insurance thanks this year’s panel of judges: Charlene Evans, a social worker with the Department of Children, Seniors and Social Development; Krista Young, a Kindergarten French Immersion teacher at Sacred Heart Academy and Sergeant Mike Babstock, with the RCMP, Burin.
South Coast Insurance, an independent family-owned insurance brokerage, has been meeting the insurance needs of Newfoundlanders since 1978 through its head office in Marystown and nine locations across the Province.
