Victoria Breaugh announced as the fifth annual Kelvin Saulsberry Award winner
Raleigh, NC (August 24, 2022): This week during our all-hands meetings we announced Victoria Breaugh as the recipient of the 5th Annual Kelvin Saulsberry Award. The award, which is close to all our hearts, was created in honor of Kelvin Saulsberry, a former employee and teammate we tragically lost in 2018. In 2019, as a way to celebrate and memorialize Kelvin’s life and his time with us, we started an annual employee award — The Kelvin Saulsberry Award.
The Kelvin Saulsberry Award is a celebration of what we deem to be just a few highlights of the many amazing personal traits and values Kelvin embodied and expressed. Kelvin was an amazing person and there is no single trait that truly captures the goodness he projected to everyone who had the pleasure of knowing him. Cycle Labs employees were allowed to nominate any employee they felt embodied some of Kelvin’s amazing attributes.
The following criteria were given as guideposts for nominations, all of which Kelvin exemplified on a daily basis:
- Dedication: The nominee is self-motivated to work hard at growing the business and themselves personally.
- Integrity: The nominee is trustworthy and dependable.
- Caring: The nominee shows genuine concern towards those around them.
- Joyful: The nominee shows joy in performing their duties.
- Patience: The nominee shows calm endurance under pressure.
- Humble: The nominee maintains a modest and simple attitude.
