One of the many things the Taber and District Chamber of Commerce does at the beginning of every new year is announce the nominees for Employee of the Year. This year’s four nominees are Crystal Ackroyd for IG Wealth Management, Karen Ivan for AB Sugar Beet Growers, Megan Moline for Taber Public Library, and Bre Tilleman for Taber Container Depot. Each of these individuals spoke on what it was like to be nominated as Employee of the Year.

“It was just a lovely feeling,” said Ackroyd. “I don’t know how to explain it. I’ve never been nominated for something like that before. It was just really nice to know that my boss sees the value in my work.”

“I would have to say that I was both surprised and honoured, asking myself how this came about and who would have nominated me,” said Ivan.

“When I found out I was nominated for Employee of the Year I was surprised. I didn’t expect it at all,” said Moline. “It’s really sweet and it means a lot that my manager Chris even thought of me.”

“I was completely shocked,” said Tilleman. “For one, I never heard of it before and two well it was just shocking. ‘What me? No, way!’”

One of these nominees will be recognized as Employee of the Year at the chamber’s annual dinner, which will be occurring on Friday, Jan. 27 at 7 p.m.
