A server at Perkins Family Restaurant has been honored as the area's Server of the Year.
Billie Eubanks of the Elkhart restaurant was honored Feb. 12.
Scott Shultz is passionate about service and continued his tradition of honoring a restaurant server with the third annual Scottie Award. She was one of four people nominated for the award. Others who were considered were:
• Armando Paez of Antonio's Italian Restaurant, Elkhart.
• Esmeralda Mendoza of Bendix Restaurant, Elkhart.
• Teresa Goddard of Eddie's Steak Shed, Granger.
Shultz, along with the Michiana Human Resource Association, orchestrate the awards. The awards have grown and Shultz said he plans to expand the awards to Receptionist of the Year and Bartender of the Year.
He'll take nominations at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 574-292-9186. After that, he'll meet with the employer's manager or management team and collect a contest entry fee. After that, a panel of secret judges will visit the business as customers to rate the work. The awards are then kept secret until the ceremony at an association meeting.
