SHIRLEY STROUD EXCELLENCE AWARD WINNERS

Shirley Stroud was an employee at Lakeside Inn and Casino who many of our guests and staff knew and loved. Shirley demonstrated attitude, courage, and a caring character in dimensions that are an inspiration to many of the "We."

Third Quarter - July 2017 - Sammy Hernandez  

Chef Samuel Hernandez began his culinary career at Lakeside Inn in March of 2000 working his way up from dishwashing and food prep to the hot line in what was once called Taberna, our Mexican restaurant.  From the beginning, Samuel has had a keen eye for quality and attention to detail, both critical factors for any chef. Samuel took notes, memorized recipes, learned food preparation techniques, worked hard and mastered every cooking station along the way.  Samuel’s work ethic shows to be just as impressive as his culinary skills. Samuel has worked six and seven days straight and doubles shifts when needed; always showing up with a smile, an excellent attitude and willingness to help. Samuel is well liked by his peers and supervisors. He is friendly, honest, and an innate leader. Over the course of the years, Samuel’s persistence and perseverance have paid off, making him one of our most important chefs on property and a key player in the success of Latin Soul. Samuel has become an asset to the food department and Lakeside Inn.
