MADISON, WI – Melissa Walthall, administrator at Park View Community Campus in Woodville, Wisconsin was honored recently with the Shining Star - Administrator Award at the 67th Annual Fall Convention of the Wisconsin Health Care Association and the Wisconsin Center for Assisted Living (WHCA/WiCAL). WHCA/WiCAL’s 67th Annual Fall Convention was held October 17-19 in Green Bay, Wisconsin. The Shining Star Awards were presented on October 18 during an awards luncheon.

Quality long-term care is provided by thousands of dedicated and honorable caregivers in Wisconsin’s assisted living and skilled nursing facilities. The WHCA/WiCAL Shining Star Awards are recognition of those individuals from throughout the provider community who have been nominated and selected as worthy of special recognition this year.

“While thousands are worthy of recognition for their service to Wisconsin’s elders, Melissa has clearly distinguished herself as a Shining Star,” WHCA/WiCAL President & CEO John Vander Meer said. “We couldn’t be more proud of all of our dedicated staff and volunteers in Wisconsin’s long-term care community. Melissa is an outstanding representative of the dedicated, caring, and compassionate people who care for our frail and elderly citizens.”

“I am honored to receive this award, and credit the entire team at Park View, along with the wonderful residents we serve, for helping to make my job so rewarding,” Walthall said. “While it is always nice to be recognized, I share this honor with all of my colleagues who come to work every day eager to care for our residents.”
