BrightStone “STARS of the Week”

Due to the "busy-ness" of the holiday season, our STARS of the week recognition program will take a break, and will return in January of 2014. We want to sincerely thank Williamson Medical Center for their ongoing support of this recognition.  Our adults are so proud when they are selected to be recognized! Williamson Medical Center will also be participating as a sponsor for both our Jingle Bell Sale on December 6 & 7, as well as our Christmas Reception at the Factory on December 12, in Jamison Hall.  We would love to see all of you at either, or both, of these holiday events!

Williamson Medical Center presents–STARS of the Week–Catherine & Elissa!

A little trivia about Catherine is that she has a large collection of sunglasses!  She is rarely seen without them and in last year's Christmas parade she wore them with her elf costume.  She looked adorable!  During her days at BrightStone, she says she enjoys working in consumables, yoga class, working puzzles, going to the YMCA, and saying the prayer before lunch. Elissa is a people person and is attached to many of our staff and students.  Her reaction as she greets everyone each morning is priceless!  She is a BrightStone girl and never wants to miss a day.  Her favorite BrightStone activities are working in the consumables room, bowling, music, riding the exercise bike and helping clean up after break.
