Shout Out to Jana McKinney

Submitted by Gregg Hadley

Shout Out from Shad Marston, who nominated fellow McPherson County agent Jana McKinney for her work in the Senior Health Insurance Counseling for Kansas (SHICK) open enrollment period. Shad reports that during a seven week period, Jana averaged 16 appointments each day and personally consulted with over 100 people per week. She also responded to over 30 SHICK related calls per week.

Shad further explains that Jana goes above and beyond to be courteous as well as conscientious enough to escort her SHICK guests to the door and to their car if needed. She is so polite when it comes to listening to their personal stories and talking about family.

Jana, here is your Shout Out! Thanks for what you did, what you do, and what you will do in the future!

And, here is an additional Shout Out within a Shout Out. All Extension professionals have periods of time where we go from being “merely” busy to incredibly or even unbelievably busy. Your work is appreciated by Shout Out, K-State Research and Extension, and, most importantly, the people we serve.

If you have a colleague or colleagues that deserve a Shout Out for doing their job exceptionally well or going above and beyond the call of duty – Shout Out wants to hear about them. Please send an email to ghadley@ksu.edu with their name and the reason they deserve a Shout Out.
