Holshouser receives leadership award

David Holshouser, a licensed practical nurse at the Missouri Veterans Home, was chosen by his co-workers to get the quarterly Leadership Award. Administrator Jan Rau said, "David demonstrates the principles of the Veteran Home's Achieve Global Training Program."

Those principles are: focus on the situation, issue or behavior, not the person; maintain the self-confidence and self-esteem of others; maintain constructive relationships; take initiative to make things better and lead by example.
