KNOXVILLE – Congratulations to Jim Agey, Nutritional Services, for being selected the KHC Hero of the Month at Knoxville Hospital & Clinics.

“I’m nominating Jim because of his service and willingness to go above and beyond to help someone out. I’ve seen Jim do this even when they are really busy in the kitchen. I’ve come in looking for a specific food and if they are out or there isn’t something made, Jim will offer to make something right there on the spot and does it with a smile. He is a great asset to the kitchen and to KHC. It’s easy to get grouchy and grumble if things get crazy, but this guy just presses on with that ‘Don’t worry, Be happy’ attitude and that attitude is contagious,” read his nomination.

Jim will be in the running for KHC Hero of the Year in May 2020.

The other employees nominated in September were Christina Walter, Natalie Morgan, A Zanoni, Erika Pleggenkuhle, Stephanie Weir, and Kendra Beckjordan.
