Each month, we host a Legendary Service Award ceremony first thing in the morning to honor our employees who went above and beyond the call of duty for the previous month. This is always a fun event, full of clever scripting by our management team, and enjoyed over breakfast and coffee, but this morning’s LSA was unique in the very best ways! Not only did this event’s coordinators do an outstanding job writing a “Sports Center”-themed script, dressing the part, and putting on a great show on their own, they also surprised our entire company by inviting Fredbird to join in on the fun! It was a perfect surprise, considering the entire event’s theme was baseball-related, and, well, let’s face it – we are in Redbird Nation! Fredbird ran through a sea of Woodard employees dressed in red, giving out cool prizes and rallying our team spirit! He even stayed to take group photos with each department – leaving behind memories we’ll all cherish for years to come! Here’s a glimpse at some of the fun we had with our St. Louis Cardinals mascot, Fredbird.
