June 29, 2020
Huron, S.D. – Huron Regional Medical Center (HRMC) honored its June Exceptional Employee of the Month, Jeramie Sopko, with a small department celebration earlier this month.
Sopko, who has worked as an IT technician for nearly one year, was nominated by coworkers to receive the honor. According to the nomination, “Jeramie demonstrates HRMC’s core value of being helpful in every interaction!
“He has a great customer service attitude and is willing to help out whenever he gets a call,” the nomination continued. “I sincerely appreciate Jeramie taking the time to understand my need and make it happen.”
HRMC’s Exceptional Employee of the Month award recognizes an employee who goes above and beyond to demonstrate the hospital’s values of being accessible, helpful and knowledgeable. Employees can be nominated by other coworkers or by a patient or visitor who witnesses exceptional service. A committee of employees from various hospital departments chooses the employee on a monthly basis and an Exceptional Employee of the Year is chosen at year-end from the 12 monthly honorees.
As June exceptional employee, Sopko received a small recognition reception with social distancing, a candy bouquet, a meal certificate to a local restaurant, a professional photo session and portrait, $50, a lapel pin and a special parking place for a month.
Sopko will graduate with a Bachelor of Science in Information Systems from Dakota State University in Madison, South Dakota in December. He hopes to pursue a master’s degree after graduating. While in school, he worked as a truck driver, driver manager and transportation manager.
Sopko and his wife, Jessica, have four sons between the ages seven and 19: Kolten, Logan and Mason Wieman, and Devin Sopko. In his spare time, he likes to learn something new every day and do lots of woodworking.
