CHARLESTON, S.C., Feb. 28, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- One local company is doing more to put community outreach in the hands of its employees. Charleston based importer and supplier, Total Beverage Solution (TBS), is pleased to announce Marina Terzieva, as the inaugural recipient of the "First Class Award." Fellow employees Mea Brooks and Lindsay Waters were also acknowledged for honorable mention.
"We wanted to institute a company practice to not only recognize outstanding performance," said CEO, Dave Pardus, "but one that also allows our employees to take a more active role in how TBS gives back to our community."
Terzieva, Accounting Manager at TBS, was voted "First Class" by her colleagues for displaying qualities of dedication, positive attitude and exemplary teamwork throughout the year. Beyond the award, Terzieva was also given $1,000 to donate to the charity of her choice, Camp Happy Days.
Picking a charity came quickly and easily for Terzieva, after seeing Camp Happy Days beneficial work first-hand a few years ago. Camp Happy Days provides year-long services to children battling cancer with free programs and activities. "It was such an experience unlike anything I've ever had before," reflected Terzieva, "to see children who have just gone through or are going through something like chemo, now having the chance to play and have fun. The joy on their face and the relief of their families, it just changes your perspective on life."
Terzieva says being part of an organization with a foundation of giving makes for a rewarding work environment. "I think it is important for a company to not just think about its bottom line but how it impacts and interacts with the community." Terzieva adds, "TBS is a company that cares and it shows it by the way it treats its employees. I am happy to see that same level of care extend to the community."
