MARICOPA, AZ – Employment Manager Lauren Conley was selected as Harrah’s Ak-Chin Casino’s Hero of the Quarter. Recognized for going above and beyond to raise awareness for important causes and help those in need, Conley was nominated and selected by her Harrah’s Ak-Chin peers.
Conley has logged more than 140 volunteer hours this year and is the Saguaros team leader for the Susan G. Komen 3-Day Walk. She is also a Savvy committee member, a business impact group that focuses on women’s empowerment, support and advancement within the company.
“Lauren demonstrates leadership and inspires others with her efforts,” said Samantha Gulick, Director of Marketing and Hotel Operations. “I joined Lauren’s Saguaros Susan G. Komen 3-day walking team these last two years, which allowed me to witness Lauren’s dedication to breast cancer awareness. Even when Lauren was finished raising her required funds, she still helped ensure the rest of the team met their goals by organizing bingo, bake sales and cookie grams.”
Hero, a team member-based volunteer program, enables Harrah’s Ak-Chin Casino employees and their families to make noteworthy and visible contributions to the community by donating their time, skills, expertise, and compassion to dozens of volunteer projects. At the end of each quarter, employees are encouraged to nominate and recognize peers who have a servant’s heart for the Hero of the Quarter recognition.
