Bill Speech


The KHCA/KCAL Education Committee invites you to submit a nomination for the 2015 KHCA/KCAL Marty Hegarty Life Time Achievement and Distinguished Citizen Recognition Program. This statewide program is designed to highlight and honor the elders residing in nursing and assisted living homes who have spent much of their life making a difference in the lives of others.

The program is designed to promote a positive image of the Kansas Elder and the facility in which they reside, recognize their personal achievements and elevate the status of Kansas Elders. This is an excellent opportunity for your staff – it encourages them to participate in honoring their residents while helping to bring public awareness to the long term care community.

The winners of these awards will be recognized at our Spring Quality Conference in Manhattan, Kansas, April 7 & 8, 2015, with the luncheon honoring the Ambassadors taking place on April 7th.  It is our hope that the resident and a family representative will be able to attend this special recognition.
