Ex Awards
November 3, 2021

Making a difference in members’ lives is what Co-op team members do each and every day. It is a concept that has guided us for nearly a century, and it will continue to ensure our longevity and relevance for generations to come. We are recognizing team members that have delivered exceptional service to our community with our new Ex Awards program. We want to recognize all forms of exceptional community service, be that within their work at Pembina West Co-op or out in the community.

Read on to learn the stories behind the Ex Awards we have presented so far.

Mark Henderson

“In May the Gas Bar was experiencing management shortages due to COVID isolation periods. We asked Mark to help out at the Gas Bar, overseeing operations there during the absence of our manager and supervisors. Mark did just that, spending countless hours there ensuring operations ran smoothly, from paperwork to ordering and more, and even pumping fuel when needed! At the same time, he was able to ensure his regular duties with the Energy & Ag Division were kept up. In my opinion, Mark went above and beyond for the betterment of Pembina West Co-op.” - Garry (June 22, 2021)

Bree Ebens

“Bree always goes above and beyond with customers and fellow team members. She goes the extra mile to make everyone feel welcome and included. Her exceptional kindness and service with our mail carrier always stands out. In my role orienting new team members, I witnessed Bree’s exceptional service when we welcomed a team member with visual impairments. This team member spoke of Bree with the highest praise for her extra care to make them feel at home.” -Joanne (Aug 8, 2021)
