Edgewater Systems Employee Appreciation Award Presentation hosted by Edgewater Systems’ Customer Service Committee recognized a combined 140 years of employee anniversaries. The event was designed to be inclusive to all faculty and staff and provide a celebratory forum for employees to socialize, connect with peers, and receive a plethora of information ….and that they did! More importantly to congratulate our peers for their outstanding years of service. We recognize that our achievements and longevity are due to the dedication and hardworking, driven Edgewater family.

Dr. Danita Johnson Hughes congratulated staff for their many years of dedicated service.  “ We could not have done all the great work we do without the dedication to service of individuals like Ms. Betty Gray who has been here for forty years, as Edgewater has been here for forty-two. ” Dr. Danita Johnson Hughes.

“We are grateful for the knowledge that all of our longstanding team members share with new hires, they are all pillars of positivity for all who they come in contact with”, said Ms. Arlene Pearson, Chief Human Resource Officer.

Ambassadors for Edgewater raise funds at Speakeasy Gala

On Friday, October 14, 2016, the Ambassadors for Edgewater hosted its annual Speakeasy Gala. The event was held at the Sand Creek Country Club, Chesterton, Ind. For over fourteen years the Ambassadors have hosted an annual gala to help raise much needed funds that go a long way to:

  • Provide the financial support to assist Edgewater to continue providing services to persons in our community experiencing behavioral health challenges, including those who need help but have no way to pay.
  • Assist Edgewater in its marketing and outreach efforts that are aimed at removing the stigma associated with mental illness and addiction.

Over 200 guests played their hands on the gaming tables and bided on wonderful silent auction items. Guests also tried their hands at winning prizes that included iPhones, tables, TV, and much more.
