An excerpt from the nomination said it well:
Old Lisbon Road’s Senior Managers (OLR) members include: Kelly Kierstead, Ashley LaChance, Destiny Lizotte, Trista Conners, Sue Cote
This team shows an impressive ability to openly communicate, pool resources, distribute the workload & develop a synergy to produce clear visions. OLR had a COVID outbreak where 11 or the 12 clients tested positive. In one day, this group rearranged rooms & changed the physical plan to meet the needs of the outbreak & maximize staffing. This team works together to assure the best outcomes for 12 of the most fragile individuals we serve.

Congratulations OLR team!
