Greta Kruger Receives Annual Nichols Award
On May 8, 2009 Greta Kruger received the Ann Nichols Leadership Award for excellence in the field of addiction treatment. Greta first became involved with Residence XII as a volunteer in 1981 and then worked at Residence XII South, Highline Community Hospital for nine years as Department Head. She later served as Outreach & Intervention Manager and is currently a Counselor, specializing in the treatment of Older Women.
Approximately 75 peers, friends and alumnae attended a reception in Greta’s honor. We wish to thank Eric Sakai, our Chef and Kitchen Manager, for the delicious food he prepared. This award has never been awarded to a Residence XII staff member, however over the years many people have nominated Greta and this year a group came to us and made the case for this well-deserved recognition.
Greta’s impact on women in recovery is demonstrated regularly but no more so than at Alumnae Retreats when many bring their cameras, seek out Greta and ask for a picture to be taken with her. As all of our Alumnae know—Greta is truly a Wise Woman™.
