Hickory log employee of the quarter

We’re excited to announce that Jimmy Colello has been chosen as our employee of the quarter. Jimmy was born and raised in Floyd County. He applied to work at Hickory Log in 1988 when he heard about the position from a friend. He said that although he had no prior experience with the special needs population, he accepted the position and has stayed with Hickory Log because of the appreciation the residents have when taken on community outings and their accomplishments in Special Olympics. Congratulations to our amazing Resident Aide, Jimmy!
